Fascinating, unique. Brews clear green. The aroma is dark and warm, and un-tea-like...it is almost like a good soup, with subtle spices and cooked vegetables.

Following Upton's brewing instructions, the flavor is mellow, smooth, and warm in character, with almost no bitterness...but lacking the crispness I like in green tea. I prefer brewing at a higher temperature. This tea does not scald as some green teas do; at a higher temperature a pleasant bitterness and a hint of smokiness come out, which are absent if brewing as recommended, and I think make the tea more balanced.

Although I'm not sure I'd want to drink this tea regularly, it's worth trying, especially if you're seeking something unique. But I'd recommend starting with a sample--I can see many people disliking this tea.
