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.

Bio

Love loose-leaf tea. My favorite right now is black unflavored, which I often drink with a small dash of milk but sometimes just clear.

I enjoy finding favorites and what I like to keep in my cupboard.

I also enjoy Chinese green teas, and am currently exploring some pu-erh as well.

Likes: cacao/chocolate, coconut,
Dislikes: rooibos, bergamot, seaweed, licorice
