Smooth wish some vegetal pucker in the finish.

This Ali San reminds me of roasted leeks, spinach and fresh greens. There’s a hint at light fruity sweetness in the body as well.

Kanyabashi’s sencha is a wonderful green brew with a light liquor and deep green leaves.

The loose aroma is grassy with just a touch of vegetal sweetness bordering on spinach.

Once brewed the aroma turns heavy of roasted leeks and this is refracted throughout the flavor. There’s a medium length tail of vegetal power, but nothing off-putting.

A very comforting brew.

Smooth and less astringent than most Earl Grey teas I’ve had. I think this brew would be enjoyed by any Earl Grey fan.

The leaves look rather pretty with the blue wisps strewn throughout making for an interesting visual. These leaves brew a nice copper liquor.

The aroma is lighter than I expected both dry and brewed. Hints of cream, vanilla and citrus spice are the highlights here.

The cream and bergamot come together for a palate pleasing brew.

This wonderful teas’ leaves don’t look anything like any oolong I’ve ever had. They’re not balled. Instead they’re twisted. They’re not uniformly colored or monochrome either. Instead, they’re a mixture of brown, gold, green and white leaves. The aroma is more hay and straw than anything else.

Once brewed, the leaves produce a wonderful orange liquor that, while clear, reminds me of sherbet. The brewed aroma smells more of a light Chinese green. Not so much grassy as artichoke-like but not heavily so.

The flavor is light, easy on the palate and smooth. While there is some astringency and a light drying of the palate it’s subtle. Flavors of straw and hay combine with notes of a floral undertone which seems to add some sweetness to the brew.

Insane about tea and technology!

Born in Maryland in a suburb of D.C. humorously named “Chevy Chase” I moved to Cincinnati as a… wait… you don’t want to read this crap!

My tea birth came in 2004. While I had been drinking tea throughout my life it was more of a seasonal enjoyment and not something as empassioned as what it gives me now.

I’m currently working to start a couple tea related businesses and run a little tea blog reviewing tea and tea related items.

You should drop by! Seriously! The door’s open!
