807 tasting notes

I love the smell of this one! Steeped it is a very light greenish yellow.
It smells very fresh and vegetal – it reminds me of the fruit and veggie farm down the road from me and what the air around it smells like when I drive past or visit it in the summer. I love having that place near by! We have a lot of “fruit farms” (they sell veggies too but we call them fruit farms) around here but its so cool having one literally blocks down the street.
Anyway this has that fresh air aroma to it with a slightly salty and buttery note.
My first sip is interesting – the cup is still very warm but I get an oceanic flavor – a little fishy but in a good way – I swear this tastes a little like water that crab legs have been steamed in – I know that may sound disgusting to some but in a strange way I love it!
There is also this sweet note coming out that is like candied pears.
Wow – I can’t believe I have never had this before!
A huge thank you to LiberTEAS for sending me a sample of this!
I did not get any astringency in my sip – more of a light twang sensation on the tongue which was nice and a bit salty. A very bright mouthfeel – not broth-y.
There is a buttery note here but it is not strong as in some green teas.
I can kind of get a hint at that smokiness but I honestly would not have picked up on that had I not read about it in the description or LiberTeas review. To me its just this lovely ocean like misty tea. Salty, a little sweet, slightly buttery, lightly vegetal and airy.
FRESH in one word.
I like it.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
