This is a lovely green tea made from the fuzzy young tips of the tea plant. I always get my fingers all fuzzy when I reach in the bag to add the leaves to my tea pot. Tea fuzz! somehow cute and tasty!

anywho, the tea is light, vegetal and smooth. There’s some grassy and floral notes. I love it cold brewed. Cold brewing eliminates the chance of overbrewing and producing a bitter drink. Put the leaves in a pitcher of water in the fridge overnight. Great for summer!

It kinda reminds me a bit of matcha as well. This is probably my favorite green tea in terms of quality and flavor.

ah SpecialTeas, I will always mourn your passing. :(

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
