Cocoa Amore was recently restocked, so I grabbed 2oz and decided to try a couple of other teas I had had my eye on. Green teas used to be my favorite, but the more involved I’ve gotten with tea, the more I gravitate towards oolongs/blacks. I couldn’t resist the 50% off of the Whispering Pines greens, and decided on this one and Huangshan Mao Feng. The orchid in this comes off as a bit perfumey for me. The base is mild and pleasant, with notes of wet hay, artichoke, and edamame. The base notes aren’t really working with the orchid for me. The flavor is also quite mild.

Flavors: Artichoke, Hay, Perfume, Soybean
