I opened this tin today! Feels good to open one up! The leaves look so fragile, long, and flat! They are larger than I expected. I’ve had dragonwells where the dry leaves are shorter. The aroma is very VERY light. A little vegetal and green.

I couldn’t rate this one because I was distracted and let it steep for longer than suggested. sigh I ran to the kitchen when I realized it was in for too long! The leaves opened up very nicely by then and smelled floral to me. The steep was yellow. I took a sip and it wasn’t bitter at all! Wow very forgiving! But alas, after a few sips, it became more bitter as I reached the bottom of my glass.

Still very good tea indeed. Darn if only I had gotten this one right!

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
