This is another tea that was a Stephen choice. I’m glad he picked this one out, because it was pleasant and not something I would have ever chosen for myself.
The flavors that hit the mouth are oddly timed. The predominant flavor is grassy kind of hay, not unlike some white teas I’ve tried. Then there’s a roasted flavor that fills the middle part of the tongue and the roof of the mouth.
Unfortunately, then the back of the mouth is hit with that envelope glue taste that I have come to associate with mate. Still, it’s a mild flavor, and not so much that I won’t drink the whole pot. There’s also a little sweetness that hits the front of the tongue after swallowing.
Flavors: Grass, Hay, Roasted, Sweet
