drank Emerald Lily by Rishi Tea
260 tasting notes

Brewed it this morning.
Tasted floral and of corn.
Still quite delicious.

Brew it once, then stop.
Does not hold up to re-steep.
Well, for me at least.

I do not know why
This came out in a haiku.
Refrigerator.

Well, being honest, this is in homage to a shirt/hoodie Auggy found.

I wants it.

Anyhow, I ran out of what I had of this, but they had it in Williams Sonoma so I grabbed a tin. I find myself craving it somewhat often, so this is going to be a tea that I replenish for sure. I like it a lot. Giving it a ratings bump.

You all are lovely
Though I am no deity.
Haikus make me think.

I like this tea too. its crisp and sweet but not overpowering.

Amazing to think how many different teas can come from the same ancient tea trees. http://www.rishi-tea.com/store/ancient-tree-tea/

Takgoti, the Golden Yunnan I’ve been raving about comes from the same leaves. Kinda cool if you think about it. (Although I’m not sure that if you don’t think about that would necessarily make it less cool, if you know what I mean.)

@East Side Rob That kind of stuff still blows my mind a bit. I know of very few things that are so versatile.

Few things amuse me
More than kindred minds that like
To tinker with words.
