From Martin, thank you!

I haven’t gotten much of a lemon note from this despite containing lemon peel, more a tone of it, and it’s mixed with a savory-tending-alkaline Chinese? sencha base that’s also toasty in flavor. It does swallow juicy which is satisfying. The ginger presents after the swallow and is very mild.

Because the base is so savory, it almost reminds me of a vegetable broth spiked with lemon juice. Something reminds me of mayonnaise?? Mixed with an almost sweet, toasty flavor and a juicy swallow, I’m left confused. I’ve had it while eating grapefruit both times to amplify the citrus. It’s an overall average green-herbal blend, for me at least. Martin seems to really enjoy it :)

The theme of this tea is ‘Almost.’

Flavors: Dry Grass, Ginger, Lemon, Smooth, Sweet, Toasty, Vegetable Broth

You are welcome! Well, last few sessions weren’t that great, maybe it’s age, maybe a bad mix (you got the rest I had)… but well, “mayo” isn’t expected flavour profile! :D

I’m grateful to have some green teas right now (even those with surprise mayo impression) since I’ve been craving them. Come on, fresh harvest!

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
