6 Tasting Notes
The smell is fruity, sweet floral and grain, perhaps roasted corn with some old books or mineral. I taste a roasted corn, berries and a noticeable mineral accent especially on later steepings. Would order again!
The leaves are remarkably uniform and all sank to the bottom of the gaiwan. I have been mostly drinking Japanese (steamed) green teas and am just starting to explore Chinese greens so will not say much more. My first impression of all Chinese greens is the roasted flavor. I look forward to becoming more familiar with this tea and Chinese greens in general.
The aroma of the rinse was rich, buttery, like a floral crispy pastry. The first sip reminded me of the caramelization of meat or sweet potatoes roasted in honey. Later, I got an intensely floral flavor – again like honey. There was something in the experience that reminded of a church smell if churches smelled good – maybe somewhere in the area of old library book about bees and summer flowers.
