It’s an interesting sort of fusion like tea. I say interesting because it seems to be somewhere in the middle between Japanese seaweediness and Chinese mellowness and nuttiness. The dry leaves smell pleasant, almost smokey. Steeped it does have a bit of sea smell but if you’re careful with steeping and don’t overdo it, it tastes good. Oversteeping can bring nasty bitterness. Wouldn’t be #1 choice for green tea and I probably won’t buy it again but it’s an interesting tea indeed.

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
