The fragrance of the dried leaves is very sweet and reminds me of a little-on-the-cold-side Autumn afternoon, walking in a park or a forest with fallen leaves. Generally I don’t brew green teas with boiling water, but the vendor suggests doing just that. Doing so, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The tea base does not taste scorched or bitter at all, and the chestnut pieces add a buttery sweetness to the overall drink. This tea is very calming and relaxing.
