Oh, my, I like this tea.
The smell, as well as the taste, remind me of the scent of hay in the barn. A little like dried grasses, with an earthy dimension as well. Very little acidity, very smooth, soothing flavor and scent.
Just had this yesterday and Assam today and it looks like our reviews are similar. We both think Assam taste better. =D
Assam is great – I really enjoy the Indian teas best. But, when I said this tea reminded me of hay? I meant that in the best possible way. Sweet, fresh, and somehow home-y smelling. Definitely worth keeping around.

I found my way here from the tea drinking discussion group on Ravelry. I knit, sing, garden, cook and generally putter around on the Gulf Coast. I have a husband and two beagles.
