309 Tasting Notes
This certainly is an unusual green tea! If someone had made this tea for me without me seeing the package, I would say it was a sheng. Even the dry leaves look like sheng. Very dark and grey.
Brewed up it’s a bit smokey & earthy. There’s a bit of nutty in the notes along with black pepper that hits the tongue on the finish.
There’s only one tsp left of this so I’m putting it back in the box to let someone else try it out. Definitely an unusual tea!
This tea is all sheng to me.
This tea has such fantastic reviews but for me it’s just not working. I had this tea this morning and did a 2nd infusion; but each time all I got was a dark roast. I couldn’t pick up much of anything else. So back in the box this goes for someone who will appreciate it more than me. It’s just personal tastes but I’m really glad I got to try it out.

What luck getting the TTB during the holidays. There’s no way I’d be able to sample so many teas in one week while I’m working. However, I’m starting to feel a bit overloaded on tea. I might have to take some samples out and spread it out a bit.
Anyway – about this tea! It’s pretty much what the name says: Rooibos and lemongrass. Nothing amazing but not bad either. It’s just okay and a bit on the bland side. Not a tea I would stock up on but it was nice trying it out.
This teas is very sweet and cinnamon flavoured. I could taste cinnamon, apple & rooibos. Really quite delicious. It went well with my mandarin I was having. I don’t think I would buy any of this though because the artificial flavouring numbed my tongue a it. Why oh why do companies have to use artificial flavouring??? On top of being bad for everyone, they just don’t agree with me. I think there must be plenty of natural flavourings to work with.
