The dry tea smells absolutely gorgeous. There’s fruit with a kick of sweetness, followed by that characteristic sea-buckthorn tea scent that’s so hard to characterize.

(The wet tea leaves smell like waterlogged puffed rice!)

In the cup, the scent is more vegetal than sweet, again in the typical manner of sea-buckthorn brews. The sweet fruity notes return to some degree in the aftertaste, but there’s a surprising amount of astringency.

Thank you Anna for this sample. Was this from the EUTTB round 1? Not sure. I had an accident with some of my samples as the cupboards collapsed and mixed them altogether, originally I kept samples separate so I knew who they were from and what they were from ie swap or box. Got some more drawers now but I can’t remember all of them :(

Oh and just to share, I had an Incredible Hulk moment with my shorts a moment ago. I sat down and they ripped off me to look very Bruce Banner-esque. I haven’t put weight on recently but the material was thin, thin material and my arse must not mix. Oh well.

……………

This raw leaf had a beautiful scent, like sweet and creamy berries with a hint of tartness.

Flavour is a little tangy/sour with a delicate sweet berry after taste. The green tea is very thick which is making me think I steeped it too long or too hot, also getting some dryness in the after taste. It’s an astringent, grassy type of green which doesn’t quite match the sweet berries. contrast is a little too much. A few sips gets me used to it but overall it has an overly perfumed feel and it’s not as pleasant to taste as it is to smell.
