How is this a green tea? Amazing. Roasted cocoa with some almost grain-like notes. This was a gift from 29b Teahouse for a tea-tasting event they had several years ago. Upon opening the bag, I saw that these were actual sachets rather than loose tea, but that’s OK. I’m spending these autumn mornings plopping a sachet in my tea bowl and surveying the beautiful foliage while I sip. It’s delicious! They say you can get 4-5 steeps out of it, but after 3 my tastebuds are done. So good!

It’s difficult to categorize this tea in any category but by its level of oxidation, the tea definitely resembles a black tea. The astringency like with black teas is not even apparent in this tea which is what I love about it. It’s smooth, it covers the tongue, and has an interesting deep finish in the back of the throat. It’s also a tea from Korea which is what even surprised me more. I was told at a tea meet up that this was Korea’s attempt at creating pu’er but alas the failure became a beautiful accident.

Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Dates
