Thanks for sending me some of your stash, Batrachoid, I’m glad I got to try this one.

It’s an interesting-looking green, loosely rolled a bit like a gun-powder-style tea although the similarlity to those types of teas ends there, really. The leaves almost resemble an oolong’s as they unfold in the water – green mottled with bits of reddish-brown. It’s a rather full-bodied tea (for a green) with a nutty, slightly savory, slightly sweet flavour that dosen’t overpower the palate and leaves a hint of smoke and tannin in the aftertaste.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
