First steep: The smell is very nutty. The taste is smooth and with an upward nut/hay taste in the back of the mouth. The is also a big of green to the flavor around the sides and underneath the tongue.

Second Steep: Much more of a roasted flavor to this one. This one is also more green. There’s also something… maybe floral?… inside the nose when swallowing. Also, a bit of a clover taste.

Third Steep: This one is lighter. The roasted flavor is not in the forefront now but is the main part of the finish, instead. The green is the main taste. The clover taste is there just a bit more, but still faint.

I won’t report further steepings.

This is a very nice tea. Not a buyer for me, but well worth the try. I’d recommend it to others, sure.

Note to those who read my reviews:

I only about a year ago learned I have synesthesia and that is why I’ve always wrote my reviews primarily in colors. Clearly, if you’ve read any recently, that’s still how I write most of the time as that’s still how I best describe flavors. Today I realized that may be worth putting out there for folks who come across my reviews.
Moving on:

Unless otherwise noted, I use 2.25g of tea to 6oz of water for my tastings.

Geeky, vegan, dominant, serious, non-gendered, childfree, eclectic, alternatively-styled, friendly and open-minded are good descriptors of me, I think. Also: extremely introverted, but not at all shy.

I grew up on bag teas, mainly Lipton, at my father’s and great-grandmother’s homes. I loved getting up before everyone else and sitting with a hot cup and reading or watching some quiet tv in the morning.

I didn’t bother much with tea for the years of my teenhood because of no longer seeing either of these people and my mother’s house wasn’t one for tea… more coffee drinkers, instead.

During my adulthood I started drinking it again, but still mostly bag teas like Lipton, Tetley, and some herbal mixes. I enjoyed these but went no further…

…until I was at a restaurant one night and ordered a Darjeeling tea to give it a try.

I fell back in love with tea and have since been trying all sorts of loose leaf and some bag teas.

I’m currently delving mainly into white teas, but my tastes wander.

Not sure what else to say here… if you like my notes or are interested in chatting about something, do feel free to send a note. I love meeting new folks, especially since we share at least one interest, being on this site and all.
