Mmm. First, this tea smells amazingly fresh as a dry tea. It’s also stunning to look at: flat, uniform, perfect. The leaves remind me of pressed flowers that someone lovingly placed between the pages of a book. These leaves were delicately handled.

160/2.5 min The tea is the palest yellow color I’ve seen yet. It’s so pretty, one of the most aesthetically pleasing experiences I’ve yet encountered with a tea. The smell is slightly nutty, but fresh. It’s deep and rich, surprising for what I was expecting to be light and airy. I can taste a hint of grassiness and wish that it were a bit more pronounced. It’s barely there. This is a wonderful cup of tea and I’ll see how many infusions I can get out of it. I’m hoping for quite a few.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
