The cup is dominated by a creamy sweetness throughout, with some vanilla. Over the top of this are changing floral notes. Both the sweetness and the crisp floral notes continue into the aftertaste. A subtle astringency is present, which highlight the floral flavours. Despite the creamy sweetness, the cup is very clean. From second infusion onwards, slight spice is apparent in the mid-palate and in the aftertaste.

The leaves are entirely large, whole leaves, with a fold & twist. There is a medium degree of oxidation. The wet leaves have a very floral, sweet, blossom-like smell.

I love this tea – malty and biscuity like a malty biscuit – like an ANZAC cookie if you know what they are.

A great anytime tea (especially at night) that isn’t fussy. Hurrah for unwinding with roasted greens!

Excellent roasted green tea. Very full-bodied and rich in flavor without any bitterness. Look for the East Teas stand in London’s Borough Market.
