(Second Flush, Organic)

I used 1 tablespoon of dry leaf for 375 ml of water.

Smokiness in the aroma.

Pleasant dairy barn aroma flavour. There is a crispness in the flavour that reminds me of white tea. I’m detecting hints of smokey flavour. There is a sweetness that has a likeness to ginseng. I am getting the baked squash flavour that was mentioned in the description – it’s coming through as an astringent flat taste with a sweet trail that I associate with roasted gourd flesh.

Second infusion at 4 minutes. All flavours are toned down. Gourd flavour in the background. Smokey flavour near the end of the sip and into aftertaste.

Thank you to Indigobloom for this tea!

Funny I didn’t get squash! but that was awhile ago. I should try again :)

“Pleasant dairy barn aroma flavour.” Hmmm, I don’t have any idea what that would be like…I take it from the rating, good?

Oh yes. I love the smell of a dairy barn and I love just the right amount of the taste-aroma in my tea. I’m sure that there must be a better way to describe this flavour but I haven’t learned it yet.
