Tasters Review:

This tea makes my head spin with all sorts of thoughts!  Let me explain…it’s sort of like a word association thing…

When I see or hear the word ANCIENT I automatically think of tradition, history, smart, and for some reason when I think of EMERALDS I think of Green, of course, but also words like special, superior, and nature come to mind.  In a way I can relate all of these thoughts to this tea in some way, shape, or form.  Other things that come to mind while drinking this tea are…YUMMY!  Of Course the taste is YUMMY but it’s also sweet.  It’s not grassy.  It has a lingering sweet green aftertaste.  As far at the aroma…it smells like…
gently buttered veggies, sweet, nutty, yet warm.

This tea was much better than I anticipated!  I was thinking it was going to be ‘average’ but it better than average!  A nice surprise!  I would drink this again – maybe even often!  To sum in up on one word…YUM!

    Well, you certainly make it sound fabulous. I love tea, all tea. I find it is a perfect moment, considering I have to have cake or cookies with my tea. To me tea is a special way to treat the soul, the inner me. It is a time for introspection, retrospection and poetry always comes to mind. Thank you so much for writing and posting this special treat.
