This is one of those teas that – even though I enjoy drinking it – I don’t actually steep as often as I probably should.

Dry this happens to have a scent that reminds me of day-old cut grass, with a little lingering toastiness from the bits of rice. It’s a smell that I absolutely adore and I’ll often take a whiff even when I’m planning to drink other things.

On the first steep there’s a crisp, almost kale-like taste that lingers comfortably. You can pick up the background and after-taste of rice that’s quite pleasant…but my deviant palate really wishes it was just a little sweeter.

Second steep is, naturally, a bit milder…but still pleasant.

This is the sort of tea I absent-mindedly drink while doing homework, papers or whatnot. I wish I could say that it made an impression, but I’m not likely to refill my jar when this one runs out; I have a feeling there are other green teas out there that would make me happier.

Overstressed aspiring model…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things. (with the exception of jasmine…that icky stuff tastes like soap)

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
