category 2008.

The tea welcomes you with a scent reminiscent of a Sunday morning.
Perfectly suitable for breakfast with its soothing aroma which
contrarily awakens the mind as well. The scent is wonderfully pleasant
and not too robust.

Upon my first sip of this tea, my immediate impression was that it was
tart; however, this proved to not be the case. This tea had an
interesting effect on me-the more I tried it, the more I liked it!
Pretty soon sipping turned into drinking. While I personally would have
preferred some sweetener to accompany the experience, it is just fine
without it.

The tea showcases a sophisticated combination of flavors; a taste combo
very foreign to novice tea drinkers. With that in consideration, the tea
may present itself as seeming a bit "strange" yet enjoyable. The
complexity of flavor works to confuse such inexperienced palates. The combination is that of rather mild components, which makes it
difficult to describe.

While trying to separate out some of the different flavor components I
would describe this tea as having a somewhat a "nutty appeal" with some
opposing tart and sweet characteristics. This is a wonderfully flavorful
tea that is perfectly balanced. Adding sweetener introduces a different
experience that is just lovely! The sweetener made me realize that there
was an ale component to this tea.
