Good but not a rush to get again. Lovely sample to get though. I can only describe it as a green somewhere between Chinese corn/grass/hay and Japanese broth/vegetal/soupy.

Edit the second: Just having this with some sweets (coconut ice, which for non-UK folx is basically tablet with shredded coconut; for non-Scots tablet is condensed milk and sugar boiled solid) and it works really well. Moved the score from 65 to 69
Edit: Revisiting I’m getting definite sweet chestnut from this today. It’s still not really my thing, but it’s my brew for the day.

Flavors: Chestnut, Grass, Nutty, Vegetal

I gave up alcohol in 2013. When my taste buds came back I discovered tea.

75+ I’ll seek this out again.
50+ I enjoyed this.
25+ Not for me but may be for some. I’ll take a cup if I’m your guest.
0+ I’ll politely decline if you brew this.

I brew gongfu style – lotsa tea, brief brew, then into a sharing cup. It really changed tea for me after not quite “getting it” from western style brewing.
