The dry tea leaves smell toasted and buttered with a hint of popcorn. Watching the tea leaves unfurl during the steep is peaceful. The tea is a clear light yellow – the color of white wine. It tastes smooth and toasty, with a bit of brown rice and green tea flavor. Not getting any fruit or orchid flavors, but my nose is partially blocked with a cold. A type of tea my palate is not used to, but I think I like it.

I am a mother, wife and physician who recently discovered my long lost love of tea. I swore off all coffee at the beginning of this year and have been a much happier person ever since. I have a lot to learn about tea, but I am very enthusiastic!

So far, I like black teas, flavored teas and herbals best. I’m currently working on developing my palate for oolongs so that I can better appreciate their subtle complexities. I’d like to start getting to know matchas next.
