I was feeling woodsy for post matcha hydration so my go-to forest green was the usual choice. Although afterwards I behaved oddly. Water was cooler and, once brewed, I let it cool to room temperature. Given how good this is hot, I kicked myself a few times then took a sip and sat down.
Oh. My. Sacred. Stars.
In that timeframe, it somehow transformed into vanilla cream butter. There were notes of coconut, honey, some of the usual vegetation. Had I made sencha by mistake? Could someone had used my cup for milk and some dried in it? It was so rich tasting I had to put it down and sip at it.
The second infusion I tried to replicate the steeping temp and a bit more time but the water must’ve been a smidge hotter. No sencha, no cup contamination, there was still vanilla creme although a darker wood taste fought with it. And won. But it was still delicious. Definately a daytime dessert.

Thank you TheDJBooth for this sample!

I love the concept of this tea. This was a good, fresh, bold green tea! The dry leaves are forest green in color. They smelled fresh and green. The leaves were curled up almost like gunpowder but not all the way.

After Infusion, the liquor was a light yellow color almost like a white tea. The scent was sweet with a little nutty note to it. The flavor was bold! I was pleasantly surprised by the natural sweetness in this brew. There was a hint of maltiness, savory and nuts and toast to it but it isnt loud. The green and grassy notes also played its tune. This tea was very smooth! Good tea overall :)

Thanks for sending me some of your stash, Batrachoid, I’m glad I got to try this one.

It’s an interesting-looking green, loosely rolled a bit like a gun-powder-style tea although the similarlity to those types of teas ends there, really. The leaves almost resemble an oolong’s as they unfold in the water – green mottled with bits of reddish-brown. It’s a rather full-bodied tea (for a green) with a nutty, slightly savory, slightly sweet flavour that dosen’t overpower the palate and leaves a hint of smoke and tannin in the aftertaste.

I love to smell and eat the tea leaves before actually tasting and this is another good tea to do so. The smell is almost fruity; maybe sweet and vegetal is a better description, it’s hard to pin point. The leaves themselves taste rather bitter and roasted.

This is such a good green tea! The flavour hits you dramatically with peaks of I have no idea and trails off dry. Opposite of its flavour profile: flat and consistent. I find it much more rising and falling.

Sure am glad I purchased this again; it’s been too long.

Very similar to Tao of Teas Jade Bamboo, almost identical taste, perhaps a little more on the tannic side. Very nice.
