25 Tasting Notes
This might be one of the most refreshing things I’ve ever put in my mouth. Loads of green acidity and bitterness, but only in a good way. The complexity isn’t lost at all. Like many shades of green. Repeated steeping lost some of the zing but added to the breadth of flavours.

2nd flush, late May 2017. Brewed in and poured from a pyrex jug. My notes on the bag say “fruity, honey, malt? 7/10”
Edit: revisiting this I like it more, and taste loads of candy-floss.
Flavors: Cotton Candy, Fruity, Honey, Malt
Bit of a gateway for me. The first tea I tried after reading the faq on reddit/r/tea, linked articles and finding a supplier. At first it just tasted like astringency and chlorophyll. It took a little time for my head to adjust to the tastes of teas. Then suddenly I got tastes of hay and meadow scents and huge refreshment. Hooked me.
Flavors: Astringent, Grass, Hay
