A fairly simple and reliable tea, but it lacks something that would elevate it above similar teas meant for casual drinking.

The dry leaf aroma is flowery with notes of baked apples and stonefruits. After the rinse, the scent reminds me of macaroons and other biscuits, as well as olives. Then, in the empty cup, I mostly get a sweet florals.

The taste is mineral with strong honey notes and flavours of persimmon and mint tea, without the cooling sensation of the latter. The aftertaste is actually a little cooling and also brings hints of lemon zest into the picture.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
