Single Origin Teas packs their tea in a paper bag that looks like a smaller version of my school lunch bag from a million years ago. Except this has a little window in the front. The interior of the bag is lined. The reason for the long comment on the bag is that, except for the wire tie, the entire thing is compostable. The plastic lining is made from some kind of plant material.

Anyway, this is my first Ceylon green. Dry it smells grassy. The wet leaf scent is stewed beef. The taste is harder to tie down. It has leather qualities beneath lighter floral notes. Brisk and slightly drying, but not bitter.

I think Harney and Sons uses an Indian green base for their flavored greens. I don’t know if it is Ceylon, but I like it!
