** As always stated by My Tea Vault, we think you should enjoy tea the way you like it, I like mine very strong with no sweetener, these are just guidelines and I suggest you use the guideline then adjust for your own tastes.
COSTS: $ not available yet (!!)
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Prior to brew: Very slight scent, very slight
Brewed: There is nothing like pulling apart the leaves from a pressed tea. This tea serves up a medium liquor.
Scent: This tea’s scent will remind you of dirt, the smell of fresh dirt when you hold it in your hands and let the wind take it away.
Flavor: A bit stronger scent, brewed more vegetal with the flavor or a meadow.
Sentiments: I have to confess I was a tad bit intimidated by the tea(s), yet I was very anxious to try them, these were my first pressed teas and they sent me into a whole other dimension. This tea was fabulous with an earthy taste and a bit stronger tea. It’s aftertaste was mellow and reminded me of the fresh spring meadows. I’ll say it 100 times, it’s amazing the flavors you can get from a single tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “8“.
Till next sip…
