Got this from a sample, so decided to try it.

5g, 100ml, at around 185F, with 5s wash

Very vegetable and hay-ish taste. Really reminds me of hay combined with… dried tree branches? Have to be rather gentle with temperature and steep time, otherwise it gets that very bitter, burned vegetable taste that is honestly awful.

I personally dislike this taste of ‘branches’, however it leaves a very satisfying and calming sensation after drinking. Kinda like a digestif in a way. It does leave your mouth very dry and parch though

I’m unable to obtain any sort of sweet or berry flavour out of this. It is constantly a mixture between grass, hay, and branches. Making it too hot and/or too long of a steep makes it incredibly bitter, and everything else is a variance of hay and branches and astringent taste.

Not my kind of tea. Only thing that I enjoy is the very calming effect of it, that is all.

Flavors: Astringent, Dry Grass, Grass, Hay

My grading criteria for tea is as follows:

90-100: Phenomenal tea right here. Drinking this is just a wonderful treat.

85-89: Extremely good tea but it’s just missing that one thing to make it exceptional.

80-84: Very good tea. May not be the best, but it certainly is excellent for the times that you crave them.

70-79: Good tea. The types of teas that have that one characteristic to them that makes it worthwhile despite lacking in all the other areas

60-69: Average tea. Doesn’t excel at anything but isn’t’ horrible in anything either.

40-59: Below average tea. I can see how someone else would like this tea but I definitely don’t like it. Could be an issue with my brewing or just my taste in general. If it’s a brewing issue, rating will be adjusted accordingly.

0-39: How is this tea. Better beverages could be made by grabbing a clump of dead grass from my front lawn.
