"The tea liquor is the most amazing spring green color, with a strong vegetal, seagrass aroma. My first sip filled my mouth with sweetness and an incredibly pronounced vegetal taste of the sea. As I sipped, I detected a light floral quality underneath all of that vegetalness. I enjoyed this tea much better when it cooled."
