Its Spring. The peas are beginning to attach their tendrils to the trellis, the lettuce is sprouting. The sword ferns are dying (oops, that wasn’t supposed to happen). Its light later and I’m biking to and from work: tired, light and surrounded by green. Perfect conditions for drinking this slightly ridiculously named tea: noticeably astringent, lightly colored and quite vegetal.
Time seems to move so slowly at work. That may be why my tea oversteeped. Despite its bitterness, it still has a vegetal almost woody taste.
I’m not going to change my rating for this tea. Its impossible to be remotely objective about it after three days of non-stop gardening. We now have a raised bed (due to invading tree roots) with onions, peppers, cucumbers and an extra tomato plant in it.
If you’re observant, you’ll notice this isn’t the first gardening related post I’ve made about this tea. Its grassy, vegetal and astringent. Imagine drinking a forest of wet trees, and the dirt they’re planted it. Um, next time I’ll try to think of a better metaphor, but in the meantime, try this tea.
