Pleasantly sweet without being grassy, this tea was just the thing for a gloomy late-summer Wednesday. The bean notes manifest almost more as a texture rather than a flavor; it lends a very silken, waxy (not in a bad way), protein-y/nutty feeling to the undercurrent, while the top layers of tea are very calm and settled. It seems like a very content tea, very satisfied with its lot in life.

22-year-old tea enthusiast (of course), attemping to try new things and expand my horizons. I use lots of slightly unusual, sometimes synesthetic words to describe tea, and normally it involves hand motions…online I will have to make do with scare quotes and odd punctuation. I am actually literate, I promise.

A note on my reviews: I try to be as descriptive as possible in the word portion of the reviews. I don’t think it counts as being entirely objective, but I try. The numbers, however, are a little more subjective. There are perfectly good teas that I may rate low in number because compared to what I normally like, it’s not deserving of a higher score. So perhaps more weight should be given to my words than my numbers.

“Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. [It] is more than an idealization of the form of drinking; it is a religion of the art of life.”
