This tea is so so good! I’ve bumped up the rating. But, I’m having a hard time describing it…
It smells somewhat of grass or hay, but the taste is very subtle. I am not sure I can really describe the taste, but I really like the mouthfeel. It’s slightly thick, but not in a bad way. In fact, since I’ve started drinking more green/white/oolong teas, my old favorite herbals seem so watery. I can’t say much for color, as I can’t really tell in my mug, but it’s not cloudy.

This was just a sample, and I will be sorely disappointed when it is all gone. I think I’ve only got one or two cups left.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea off and on for a few years, but only in the last year have I started to test out loose leafs, and expand my taste buds.

I consider myself very new to the world of teas, especially when it comes to properly steeping, and knowing much about what certain teas are supposed to be like.

After discovering there was more to tea than Red Rose OP, I have traditionally tended to drink mint teas and similar herbals (but no fruity ones), red rooibos, honeybush, and the occasional matte. I’ve only recently discovered white teas and oolongs, which I really enjoy.

I’m expanding my knowledge, trying new teas, and just starting to learn about temperature/steep times, etc.

0: I don’t even want to taste it.
1-10: I can’t finish the cup.
11-30: I’ll finish my cup, but that’s it.
31-50: I will drink it until I’ve used it all up, or find someone to give it to. It’s ok, but it’s not something I tend to reach for.
51-70: I enjoy it enough to reach for it specifically, but I won’t get it again.
71-80: I enjoy it quite a bit. I would recommend it to others.
81-90: I would definitely buy again, but it’s not my favorite.
91-100: The creme de la creme
