Nice, I’m drinking this at UBCO right now up in the sr. collegia.
The leafs take on fuzzy earth-tone greens and I agree that they smell of fresh hay in the morning. I wouldn’t describe this as floral or nutty as a few other reviews did? I’m actually drinking this tea right now, so I will let it cool down a bit more before I make any final tasting conclusions. …… …….. ……….. hmm, still no floral or nutty flavours. I find it much more “earthy” and I slightly agree with the hint of corn off the cob. Oh PEAS, the taste slightly reminds me of pea soup..maybe I just really lack a tea tasting vocabulary.
Anyways, it’s a really nice mild earthy tone. This is a great green tea. I would buy it again.
I really feel like something is wrong here. Everyone keeps talking about nutty, floral flavours…even the tea bag describes it that way: “Crisp and fresh with notes of toasted chestnut and wild orchid”….but I’m stickin’ to my guns…this tea is earthy and of pea soup people!…..would anyone agree?
