Tastes as young as it is. Astringency and bitter present, but not overpowering. Little bits of fresh fruit poke through – peach/apricot. Taste is forward in the mouth. Warming into the stomach. Bright, light, young, lots of promise.

Dry leaves, unpacked, light aroma of nuts. Wet leaves smell of cigarettes, flowers, smoke. Similar notes during tasting, with cigarette flavor being dominant, but overall a bland tea. Medium body, slight astringency lingers, no sourness, very slightly sweet. A long lasting star anise flavor lingers in the back of the throat.

Flavors: Char, Flowers

Just finished a tea share and it was certainly a welcome and unique addition. I’ve never had purple wild, and it had a very interesting flavor profile. Leaf packets as expected – deep purple in about 1/3 of leaves. Aroma, even of the dry, is extremely pungent fruity. First steep was heavy sweet fruity – something like lychee/mangosteen and grassy. Medium mouthfeel. Aftertaste continued the trend with more lychee and less grass. Second steep was waning in flavor, and the third was very light.

Flavors: Grass, Lychee, Mineral
