    description

    Selim Hill’s green teas have consistently impressed tea masters for years and it only gets better. The tender leaves and their careful handling result in artisanal teas that please the palate quite well. This First Flush is light with a brisk touch and sweet with prominent notes of fresh greens like legumes. The cup gathers some depth with hints of raw fruits coming around the edges which also give it a well rounded feel. A sweet flavor similar to raw cucumber ends the cup which stays on for a cool aftertaste.

    taste

    The liquor is light-bodied, quite brisk and starts with a distinct vegetal note, similar to green beans, peas and spinach which gradually grow into prominence as you make your way through the cup. Subtle raw fruity notes can be perceived intermittently around the edges; rendering more depth and rounded texture to the cup. A raw cucumber-like note can be picked up towards the end, which lingers on in the aftertaste.
