This is a beautiful tea and very unique. Initially it tastes/smells like your average roasted tea, but it’s not quite as smokey/roasted as you’d expect. This is a plus for me since I’m pretty iffy about roasted teas—most make me feel nauseous. The sweetness was surprising to me, as was the buttery taste. Towards the end I get a sweet crisp fresh, juicy cooling minerally taste that is unexpected and addicting. I feel like a cow must feel when munching on the most delicious sweet grass (but it’s not vegetal at all to me). Ooh, I can place it now—it reminds me of persimmons or maybe nectarines and I can taste the peachiness others are talking about.
