The smell of this tea dry is absolutely wonderful, it’s like taking a walk in the woods, I can smell what I guess is the pine nuts, I don’t know what pine nuts smell like though, but it smells very chestnut-like and there’s definitely the wildflowers in there. The wet leaves have a stronger chestnut smell than wildflowers but the taste is just yummy, it taste like it smells dry. It’s a nice crisp green tea that I haven’t found vegetal. I’d say it’s good for those of us who like floral teas as that is one of the two dominant flavors, but the chestnut mellows it out and makes it just so good. The only problem I’m having with it is that is makes only one more steeping, and it’s not nearly as good as the first, even at that this is one that I will be buying again and again.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
