So first a story of how I received this tea. Today I had my last final for class where I got certified in unarmed stage combat and broadsword, as well as getting certified with recommendation for rapier and dagger. Since I did so well and because I rocked all my other finals, I decided to get myself a little gift. The Adagio I frequent just got in several Kyusu and I figured if I’m gonna reward myself it might as well be tea related. So I went in, saw some of my friends who work there and picked out a nice Kyusu for myself. To my surprise it ended up being expensive, $136 to be exact. To make me feel better about paying so much, since I didn’t have any points or anything, my friends decided to throw in a lot of samples. This happened to be one of them and it has been one I wanted for a long time.
Now to the tea….
Smell Dry: sort of sweet and veggitabally.
Wet Smell: like wet leaves after fresh rain. There is still some sweetness to the smell as well as a little smoke.
Taste: Rather lovely. There is a mix of taste similar to gunpowder and dragonwell.
