The smell coming off this tea is exactly what I wanted this morning: deep and earthy; lush, shaded vegetation; like a summer afternoon spent deep in the woods, away from the sun, surrounded by slowly trundling beetles and small frogs trying to keep wet and cool.
This promises to be a lovely departure from the flavoured teas in which I’ve been indulging of late.
Drinking this one naked and by the book.
Now UNFORTUNATELY my husband came in rocking the sexy-man cologne, so my nose and mouth are more full of Burbury Brit than Japanese Sencha, but we’ll give it a whack regardless.
Mmmm… It isn’t as brothy as I wanted it to be, but it is plum delightful regardless. The mouthfeel is wholesome and satisfying, although it has an odd astringency in the aftertaste.
This could replace my current favourite for straight green tea, but I’ll have to experiment! (Oh, nuts, amiright?) For now, I can see brewing myself a second cup of this this afternoon for sure!

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
