I’m really glad I ordered a lot of these little Planets that CLT released last year. Some people aren’t big fans of the teaball format, but I don’t find them to be too much of a hassle to deal with. Just takes a liiiitle bit longer to get opened up. The dry leaf is very sweet and floral smelling – even more so, with a bit of green veggie nose after the rinse.
This one was really a creamy floral bomb that got nicer and nicer as the ball opened up. A thick and pleasing mouthfeel that went down the throat as well. There was a small bit of vegetal astringency, but it never got particularly intense – instead just balanced the overall flavor of the tea. Good stuff in a little package.
