Yes, I am just now getting around to drinking this early spring tea in October. I don’t know why I put off trying these TGYs for so long. It’s almost as if, because TGYs are among my favorite teas ever, I was hoarding them before even tasting them. I also feel like all spring, summer, and early fall I have been so consumed by dissertating that I didn’t think I could do them justice, or something. But my boyfriend had asked about TGYs and said I needed to brew one so he could smell it, so this morning I busted this one out, finally.
It is, for sure, everything I love about TGY. Floral, buttery, fresh and green. I get the flavor of lilacs and fresh cream, along with extremely tender baby greens. I wish I could be poetic and long-winded about it, but at this point I can’t. I do want to compare it to a few others, just to see how everything differs. I think this one is a bit more crisp, lacking the slight sugary note that you find in some TGYs.
