From Capital Tea Ltd.

Spring harvested small curly rich green leaves with a potently sharp sweet green aroma. These leaves produce an intense and strongly flavourful tea liquor with a fully developed well-rounded taste and mouth feel.

I’ve had this tea as both a cold hot brew and have come to the conclusion that it’s more savoury than my preferred greens.

The dry tea smells of mint, fruit and smoke. It is a blue spruce tinged green with silver green buds.

I steeped 1.5tsp in 200ml of 80°C water.

The first flavour notes are savoury with cooked peas and bitter greens. These open up to peach with a crisp green pea note and a chestnut note. The tea has a thick present mouth feel and a faint hint of smoke. As it cools that taste is slightly grainy, with mint coming into the flavour as it cools. The mint and smoke notes become most distinct as it cools.

As a cold brew (steeped 3.5hrs), the tea has a thick creamy texture and a savoury mix of smoke cantelope, hints of plum and the texture of chestnuts.

Interesting but not a favourite. Thanks for the sample Capital Tea Ltd!

This tea came from CameronB. Enjoying it this morning. It’s sweet with chestnut notes with a slight bitterness that hits the tongue on the finish. The bitterness is not unpleasant but adds to the enjoyment of the tea.
