Ceylon is a region that’s been left relatively untouched by me, so uh

The leaves here smell a bit smokey and musty, it actually smells quite good, I think I’ll enjoy this one.

it’s buttery and creamy, with a light smoke, and a lot of astringency. This is genuinely the least vegetal green I think I’ve ever had, it’s maybe slightly grassy? but that’s kinda debatable;

it really isn’t very complex, though my mouth is extremely dry

I tried doing really short steeps, but the astringency is still very uncomfortable, it’s very powerful, and makes the tea very hard to enjoy. It’s nice and creamy while sipping, but after, it just dries out your mouth.

Very weird taste. It’s green but not strong and has a zing sort of deal when it first enters your mouth, especially on the outer edges of your tongue.

It’s a yellow grassy green that then moves farther into the yellow as you swallow.

It’s a medium-light strength green tea taste, with a sentcha like dark green bitterness deep underneath the flavor and it hits and sits on the bag center of the tongue.

Makes mouth water but doesn’t have a distinct astringent. I feel like that astringent sensation, itself, is buried by the rest of it all.

Certainly a zing to it, each sip.

Parchment sensation. Yep, that is what it makes me feel. Odd, fair enough, but that’s what my mind goes “ah ha!” on all of a sudden as right. Hm.

This is definitely good and an interesting character, but I’m not sure if it’s a rebuy for me. Is a good decision to buy a handful of samples in this shipment instead of larger sizes of any one thing so that I only have this small amount.

I give it a thumbs up as it also has a looongg finish I’m noting as I write. A dark, heavy and still having some weird zing sort of green stuffed sort of deep low in the back of my throat. Heavier and lower than anything else I can recall ever having, really…

Hm.

Interesting.

Again, not sure if it’s for me, but it certainly is something it was good to try out.
