Very fresh, subtle taste. Has that light, savoury, slightly chestnutty, fresh spring vegetal flavour similar to Bi Luo Chun but less intense (perhaps because this is fresher? I’ve never tasted a fresh harvest of Bi Luo Chun).
The leaves are cute little snow pea pods that float on the water (unfortunately they don’t point downwards in my little 80ml gaiwan like I’ve heard they should). A couple of brown stalk tops in there but overall very high-quality whole leaves.
I could infuse it 4 times at 175 – 177˚F before the leaves lost their flavour.
Rating: 82, only because I prefer the taste of sweeter and buttery teas
