I was picking out a tea when the skies blessedly split open and gave us some rain to end this miserable heat wave. This tea seemed apt. Thanks to Shelley_Lorraine for the sample! The dry leaves have a vegetal smell with a hint of sweetness. The pale yellow brew is vegetal and smoky, with a dry mouthfeel. That’s about all I have to say – I’m out of the habit of writing detailed tasting notes, but I’ll get back into it eventually.
Addendum: The second brewing is very buttery and a little tangy, with a tart aftertaste. Yummy.
