Thank you derk, I hope we will agree on, how’s this tea. Gongfu, 5 grams / 125 ml. Quick rinse and around 75°C water; measured.
Wet leaf aroma indeed like the soybean as Kawaii433 wrote, strongly vegetal but…
First steep was 5 seconds, and none of the over-powered vegetal notes pronounced to taste. It’s very clean, and thick. Brothy. Smooth. Sweet peas. Cut grass (and it’s from spring 2018!) Well. That’s amazing.
I was following Kawaii433 steeps too. So, that said… second steep was 10 seconds long.
It’s savoury and I have enjoyed it! Bamboo was there too.
Maan. Why I was postponing this tea for that long?
This tea keeps on giving. Chesnuts this time. Maybe there is some spinach notes. Not sure about the anise, and/or fennel.
I notice something I would say it’s fresh air… but with vegetal twist. That was amazing experience.
I actually… feel amazed.
Once. Once I will order my pouch of this. It’s not that expensive. Especially, when it’s so great. I wonder how the black counterpart tastes like? Great as well?
