I think this is the last green tea in my current batch of samples. This one calls for a short steep time and pretty low temperature. The scent while it brews is very rich and making me antsy to try it. Taste wise it is a little on the light side (but not too light), and unmistakably in the green category, but it also has some stuff going on that reminds me of an oolong. It has the buttery- vegetal sencha type notes, but there are also some minerally, lightly floral, almost roasty notes to it that I tend to associate with oolong teas. There is a fleeting aftertaste that is a bit sweet.

Bio

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.
