37 tasting notes

I have to say, I love the name of this tea. It makes me feel like an ultra modern tea tasting pro; like I should be sipping this tea while criticizing performance art instead of enjoying it over a poached egg.

While brewing, it smells like fresh sushi is being prepared nearby.
Flavor is a strong and up-front grassy green with a bit of a darker seaweed type flavor underneath. A lot of grassy teas taste a bit one-dimensional, like they’re just hitting that high, springy note over and over again. That is definitely not the case with this complex, oceanic tea.
Not quite getting that ‘hazelnut finish’ by the second brew, unless the package is describing the overall nutty well-roundedness of the cup.
