Taster’s Review:

I recently received a newsletter from Two Leaves and a Bud, and this tea was named their “Steep of the Month.”  So, in honor of that, I decided to steep myself a cup of this beautiful tea!

I love the color of the brewed liquor.  It is the palest hue of chartreuse!  The aroma wafting up from my teacup is very light, and smells a little bit like earth and grass after the rain.

Having reviewed this tea previously, I don’t know that there is much more I can say about how good this tea really is.  And it is!  It is remarkably light, but yet has a full, well-rounded flavor.  There is no bitterness to the taste, just a sweet, slightly nutty flavor, with an agreeable vegetative quality to the cup.  A very pleasing buttery characteristic washes over the palate as I sip.

I just love revisiting teas like this one.  Truly a pleasure!
