I have been doing an awful job at taking notes lately. :( Life has been so busy that when I have been drinking tea, I have just wanted to drink and enjoy it more organically.
Anyhow. I received this tea around this time in April (so been enjoying it for around a month), and it really does deserve a note. Thank you, steph, for recommending this one!
This tea has a lovely, sweet nutty aroma right out of the bag and tastes of sweet chestnuts from the first steep. The liquor is a very clear, light gold. I really enjoy (and recommend) taking it slow with this tea, enjoying the flavor and aroma of each steep /and/ the aroma of the leaves between each steep. After the first infusion, the aroma of these leaves is reminiscent of a nice, umami broth, and it really fills my office. Inhaling deeply is all it takes to find the nuttiness still beneath.
The following steep brings more of the same flavors, but with more depth, and a stronger sweetness kicks in in steep three. Overall, this is a lovely fresh green to enjoy, and I am very glad I got to enjoy the fresh harvest!
Flavors: Broth, Chestnut, Nutty, Sugarcane, Sweet, Umami, Vegetal
