Steeped per Verdant Tea’s instructions. 4 grams of leaf in 4 oz of water. Quick rinse. 2 second infusion. Beautiful colored liquor, like gold sunlight. Some haze, but not enough to detract from the appearance. First impression of the aroma is a soft grain character. Similar to wheat or spelt. Some sugar-like sweetness as well. The taste bears this out. Wow. So soft and smooth, beautiful texture. Some grassiness, and honey as well. The aftertaste lingers nicely. An inviting and delicious tea.
