Backlogging from last week.
A sample I received from Stacy, thank you.
The leaves look like emerald spears and smell like homemade dough for pizza or for bread. Wet, the leaves smell like bread with greens mixed in, like zucchini bread, it smelled good, made me hungry.
Taste was like spinach bread, I’ve never had spinach bread but it tastes like the zucchini bread but replace the zucchini with spinach. There is a silky texture and it’s a bit astringent. There is also a juicy quality at the end of the sip.
I like this tea because it’s so different, I can’t say I’ve tasted bread notes like that in tea before, and I like it! Unfortunately I don’t like astringency at all. I feel like I’m about as sensitive to astringency as I am to smoke…which is pretty sensitive. If you can handle a little astringency then there should be no problem.
