From Shanti Tea

Slightly vegetal, full-bodied with a mellow, distinctive aroma.

Reminiscent of a China green, with its vegetal taste, but with a greater degree of fermentation. This rare, rainforest grown tea is mellow yet full-bodied, serene, and uplifting.

A nice Mouthwatering green tea! Lovely! Mellow and relaxing! Smells more chewier than any other green that I can remember smelling this way. A little buttery, a little roasted, a LOT of lovely flavor!

If it didn’t say “Ceylon” on the label and if I didn’t see the dried leaves before steeping, I’d say this could almost – almost – be mistaken for an oolong if you were simply judging by aroma and initial sips alone. It’s delicious, but it’s subtle. It finishes the sip a bit more stridently than it starts. I’m smelling the same sweetness my palate’s come to know in various Tie Guan Yins. I can now comprehend how the more processed Ceylon teas get their reputation for notes of honey if this is how they “begin.” More akin to a China green or a weaker black tea as it goes down. Definitely a heavier mouthfeel than a sencha, regular green, or an oolong.
Intriguing! I may need to steep another pot or two to round out my full opinion, but great quality.

(This sample was generously provided to me by Shanti Tea. Thank you Team Shanti.)
Dry Leaf: Has a vegetal aroma.
Wet Leaf: Has a warm vegetal aroma.
Liquor: Is a amber color.
Tatse: The broth is light and watery in the mouth. This tea has a vegetal flavor but there is a slight earthiness in the background. Also, if you steep this tea in shorter infusion time like 10-15 seconds the tea seems to be smoother. If you steep for a minute or longer this tea gets a bitter bite to it.
Overall Opinion: I give this tea a 85. This is an average green tea that will not blow you away in my humble opinion. You may have to play with steep time for desire taste. I prefer shorter infusions with this tea.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for a chance to try this tea!

This is really good. I am currently on my second infusion, and I like the second infusion better than the first. More of the fruit notes present themselves in the second infusion. It is sweet with a savory note towards mid-sip, a pleasant toasty taste with hints of butter. The fruit notes here are quite delightful, like honey-drizzled apples. Yum!

The liqueur is a light golden color. It smells soft and subtly sweet. There is a hint of being fermented a little bit extra long. The smells are subtle overall and not very strong. The taste is a lot like the smell but stronger. The first thing I notice is that it is subtly sweet riding in the middle tone while the deeper tones are more vegital and warm. It makes me think of a flower garden when I taste the first few notes of the drink. The tea finishes not on a warm note, but instead on a colder note drawing with it a little piece of the astringency.
