This is totally different from the green teas I’ve had recently (dragonwell, flavored Lupicia greens, senchas) so my taste buds were fairly displeased at first. Because this tea doesn’t mess around, it hits you with the toasted notes throughout your sip, and afterwards, too.
Very woodsy. In a way there is seemingly little of “green tea” element in this tea. It’s all woodsy and earthy notes, but they are pretty yummy. It smells like cigarettes on your clothes would smell if it were actually ever a nice, not nasty, smell – does it make at least an ounce of sense? It actually makes me want to smoke.
And then, as it sits longer, it actually starts smelling kind of syrupy sweet.
The more I drink it, the more I like it. I am not sure if I am going to buy it any time in the near future, but I would never say no to it when offered.
Thank you, Jennkay, for letting me try this :)
