I got this as part of one of Adagio’s Green Samplers. I was probably destined to like this tea since it’s fun to say especially when combined with “vs. Gojira.” Anywho, the smell really concerned me since it seemed like I could’ve gone out to the lawnmower, scraped up some grass, and made some tea from that (and it would’ve been the same thing as the tea). I’m sooo glad that I didn’t let the smell discourage me. It’s really a lovely tea. Yes, there’s a grassy taste, but it’s like a pleasant springtime grass. NE

Proud all-around nerd, designer, fibromyalgia manager, and Assistant Library Director/Creative Director.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

I’m quite loose when it comes to tea prep. I also ended up using Steepster to find my “daily” teas which I have – and so don’t rate as many as I used to. And am not active here any more (because y’all would get tired of me drinking the same teas every single day – day in and day out).

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
