From Sanctuary T

A green tea with strength and captivating green tea taste. The tight curl gives gunpowder long shelf life and is prized for this attribute.

Sipdown no. 14 of 2016 (225 total). A sample, the second to last of the samples in the green tea sampler.

This is an interesting putty-green color in the packet, with some rolled leaves and some that are less rolled. It smells vaguely smokey before steeping, and after steeping it has an interesting aroma. Slight butter and vegetal, with a smokey, woodsy edge. The liquor is a rich liquid butter yellow and clear.

I have a bit of a sore throat today, and this is gentle and soothing to the throat. It’s a mellow tea, not sweet, but not bitter, with a richness to it that goes deeper than a lighter vegetal green. The smokey, woodsy edge does come through in the flavor, but it is somewhat subtle. It’s really a great tea for me today; it’s pushing all my yum buttons.

P.S. Steepster thinks I’ve rated 599 teas. This isn’t true. I will be celebrating 600 soon, but in three more teas than Steepster thinks, because I have two teas in my log I have never tasted and can’t figure out how to remove. And I have a joke entry for “wine” which is what I was drinking one year on my birthday.

If you click on “Edit”, then down on the bottom right is “Delete this Note”. :)

Yeah, there’s no note to delete. It just shows up in my log no matter what I do.

@__Morgana__, nice review! @OMGsrsly, you beat me to it :D ha ha!

Kirkoneill1988

@__Morgana__ are you sure theres no edit button?? i deleted one of mine that had no note :/

__Morgana__

There never was a note (that I added) because I didn’t drink the two teas involved. So there is nothing to delete.
But somehow I must have accidentally clicked something I shouldn’t have, and now I have two teas in my tealog that I never drank.

OMGsrsly

That’s weird. I’ve accidentally added teas with no notes and been able to delete them…

__Morgana__

Sure seems like it should be able to be done, but I haven’t hit upon a way to do it.

__Morgana__

Here’s an example. See the “invisible” note on this page? I see a note that has no content, but when I try to click on it, I get an error message. This is what I think is keeping the tea in my log.
