a great tea!:

when i smell the leaves dry, i smell peppery grass.

when i smell the leaves wet, the smell is intensified.

when i smell the brewed tea, i smell peppery grass.

when i taste the brewed tea, i taste peppery grass and some bitter-sweetness.

i also note that this tea can get bitter when steeped grandpa style. i also am not sure if i taste butter notes.

the color of the brewed tea is a light olive and goes to a somewhat dsrk yellow when steeped grandpa style.

i rate this tea a 80 because its great, but im not much for the taste of green teas unless it’s long jing (dragonwell)

many thanks to “enjoying tea” for this great tea

While we have plenty of this in loose leaf, we also have our second shipment of the 200f cakes coming in “any day now”. They are out of customs and on the way. I am happy you enjoyed it, Kirk. I am a little obsessed with this ripe tea, myself! Grateful, Garret
