Very smooth. Grassy notes. Slightly nutty. Slightly sweet. The wet leaf smells so good. Slight marine/seaweed in the smell but not in the taste.

I need to do a quick confession. Think I ruined the pumpkin pie. We’ll see in 30 minutes. I’m sitting here drinking this tea thinking it’s not quite what I thought it was going to be. Nutty and grassy start with a surprisingly sweet finish. Leaves nothing in the aftertaste. Still I don’t mind it. Just not going to the top of my list.

In my pursuit to try as many different teas as possible I somehow keep missing yellow types. But thanks to Garret and Manalas awesome sale I’m finally able to try some.

I’m amazed at how incredibly light this tea is. Honestly abit too light for my tastebuds. The dry smell is…. Indescribable. I have no idea of ehat to compare it to. Dry grass mixed with hay?

Infusion 30 seconds. too light for taste
1 min.-3 min. A bit of nuttiness. Truly this is a unique tea. They will need to come up with more descriptive words.

Preparation
1 tsp

Thank you for the sample Lupicia. While I’m not a huge black tea drinker there are a few out there that I quite enjoy. Thos one requires a bit more steep time then listed. Around 4 mins in all to trully bring out the flavors. Earthy. Woodsy.

There is a great Japanese food store next to our layover hotel in YVR. I try to pick up different things while I’m there. I ran out of genmaicha so I figured I’d try this out. I like it better then their bottle version which I don’t think has enough of a brown rice flavor. The first few cups were meh. But this last one was good. Perhaps its because I had to get back a taste for it.

Preparation
155 °F / 68 °C 1 min, 15 sec 1 tsp

Sometimes a cup of tea is just what you meed even when you don’t realize it. Wasn’t so fond of the flavor at first but as its cooled off I’m finding more of the flavors introducing themselves. Quite enjoyable.

Have to be real honest. While the dry leaves smell great, I’m not so pleased with the flavor. It reminds me of the smell of paint. I’m really trying to find more flavors but the more I do the more I think of paint.

Lol oh dear. I would say boo to painty tea also!

It was so weird! I tried so hard to come back after eating something and getting different tastes on my tongue but… ug

Sounds like you’ve given it a good go. There’s some really nice mint chocolate rooibos teas out there that are worth trying if you haven’t yet.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
