Oh, this is good.
This is really good.
I really cannot stress enough that I do not need more tea. But I have a problem. I always need to keep a comfortable amount of my favourites on hand and I always feel compelled to try as many new teas as I can get my hands on. And, the new Toronto DT location is on my way to the Monday class I hate. I always stop in to cheer myself up on the way home. Thankfully/regrettably, that class is over as of next Monday’s exam and I will have to make more intentional trips up there.
Anyway, yes. I wanted a straight green this week as I hadn’t tried any from DT. I’m not sure why. I guess it’s for the same reason that there aren’t many reviews of this here; I kind of go to DT for my delicious and wild flavoured teas and elsewhere for most unflavoured ones since it is easy to overlook the understated classics when at DT. This was suggested to me and I was intrigued. I got some. I tried it tonight at work. This stuff is phenomenal. It’s gently sweet. Not very grassy, but maybe a bit of a hay thing going on. A little bit smoky and earthy, but so delicate and lovely and feels wonderful in my mouth, being just a little bit buttery. Oh man. I find it so refreshing.
This stuff is amazing. I can’t comment on subsequent infusions yet but I am now going to go re-steep my leaves.
