This morning’s tea is a very random choice from the sample basket. I wasn’t certain quite what I was searching for, and fortune brought me to this one.

The scent in the package is fresh, clean and vibrant. It seems to promise a crisp cup and so I’m aiming to find out.

I steeped slightly lighter, first at one minute, then sampled. It’s vegetal, but light. Still it’s a solid cup at two minutes less than the recommended time. The promise of the scent delivers and I’m enjoying every sip.

Still, I decided to try it at a longer steep time, so I put the remaining tea back in for another minute.

The flavor is still very developed. It is full and vegetal, very like artichokes. The scent has a sweetness to it that doesn’t really translate to the taste, but no matter, it’s still very enjoyable. I think I prefer this at the shorter steeping time. There’s a touch of bitterness at the end that lingers, but it’s not overwhelming.
