Dry leaf smells of fresh sweet hay – so comforting somehow.

Brewed, the first sip is a bit brisk but smooths as the cup cools. Flavour is bright with earthy sweet potato, and then a lingering orange citrus aftertaste which develops more as the tea cools.

Second and third steeps do not have the astringency of the initial cup and tastes even more of orange and sweet potato.

That bit of briskness is leaving a dryness in my mouth and throat- although it could just be due to how I feel today.

This is a very good, flavourful and tasty tea, and I will try it again another day when the bright citrus note won’t bother me so much.
