84

Scent: Reminds me of the fresh seaweed and cucumber salad served in sushi restaurants. I also get a perfumey, sweet scent as it cools, which the seaweed smell takes a back seat to.
Taste: Unique, I cant quite think of anything similar to compare it to . Fresh, a little sweet, and floral (kind of makes me think of lavender) is the best way I can describe it. I like this with long steeps and no sugar.
Update: the most recent time I had this I got some hints of cinnamon-like notes after it had cooled down quite a bit.

Bio

I’m basically a bum with gourmet taste.
I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
