After my first successful sample from Tea from Taiwan, I was a bit nervous to try this one. Like many others have said, it’s a bit light. Sipping, I kept waiting for a punch of butter or a smack of sweet milk. Even with not a drop to spare at the end of the mug, I never did find that milky quality. Despite there being no real milkiness, I did enjoy this light cup of tea. Flavor was a bit subtle, but it was very smooth and drinkable. The scent was quite nice.. A bit more of vegetables and grass than I would have liked, but with hot water, I got something ALMOST buttery. Yes, this was a fine cup of tea. It didn’t excite me, though, and really lacked anything to push it over the edge.
