Smooth, is the first word that came to my mind. The leaves were a silverish grey, with a little bit of a lustre. This tea was unusual in that I can give it a mouthfeel; a creamy texture, likely a derivative of the smooth taste. If I didn’t brew the tea myself, i’d have sworn that someone had put some milk into the tea. This is a tea I will return to again and again.

I appreciated your comments on the ‘teavana’ thread….I agree also that WWII played a key role in eroding tea culture by adding a stigma to the influence of growing Asian cultural influence to the tea practice…the dominance of ‘European/English’ tea culture is still a predominate feature and it also created limitations to our understanding of tea…but I do agree, history is an important element in any tea understanding and without it we lose out on many levels of awareness in our appreciation
