Looks interesting in the bag: there is a mix of green and darker, mostly whole leaves. Smells a little bit like a Chinese black tea (but obviously this is something totally different). It also reminds me of the scent in the air when I used to inner-tube down this river up in the Sierras. Brews up an olive green color. The taste is surprisingly smooth. I don’t really know what to compare it to, it basically tastes like it smells. I guess I’d say earthy and woody. The person I shared it with said “I could drink this instead of coffee.”

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.
