Home from work two hours early – my calender said 3; the wall chart at work said 1. I’m certainly not going to argue! So now it’s tea time.
I received this in a swap from Rachel about a month ago, and I’m not sure if I’ve tried it yet or just failed to log it.
The leaves are fuzzy, green and grey and twisted into long, thing shapes. They smell of grass and moss.
It brews up a surprisingly dark color – it’s not what I would describe as green or gold. It’s almost a pale bronze color, a light golden brown.
I’m being a little put-off by the color/flavour – it tastes very grassy, but it looks like a black. It’s easier to reconcile the flavor profile if I close my eyes and don’t look at the tea. There’s a little bit of dry astringency, some asparagus and spinach notes.
Not a tea I’d purchase, but thanks to Rachel for letting me try it!
