279 Tasting Notes
Autumn 2015 harvest
Tastes of sweet potato, honey and malt, spice and floral. A hearty and satisfying cup when brewed strong, which also brings out some tannins in the cup.
Leaves are fragrant of sweet hay, honey and spice. Brews a clear golden yellow – amber.
Tastes smooth, mild, sweet and slightly spicy floral. Pleasant soft/slippery mouthfeel.
Very enjoyable and easy to drink. Re-steeps many times.

Thank you for sending this, Angel!
Dry leaf has the scent of sweet and salty dry-roasted green peas which carries over into the wet leaf and brewed tea. Leaf is moss green and fluffy.
Brewed tea color is yellow. Taste is salty, vegetal and slightly nutty. Extremely tasty and flavorful, although it isn’t my favorite.
Vegetal, floral bitterness and some fruity earthiness; tingly astringency with lingering sweetness. Later steeps become creamy sweet throughout.
Lovely leather, tobacco and mineral notes. Best with ample leaf and cooler temp.
Brews a pale yellow. Taste is surprisingly roasty although I brewed it quite strong. The second steeping was better I thought with more of a puffed wheat taste without the extra roast (although I am not sure that this is actually roasted).
I saw after on teavivre’s website that the recommended brewing instructions were less than what I used so would use their parameters next time.
A nice non-caffeine drink!
Sample from Angel at Teavivre – thank you!
