This year’s Spring tea order arrived in record time, so now I have even more teas to add to the ever growing list of recently acquired cakes and samples that need tasting – not that I’m complaining, of course. More teas to try is NEVER a problem!
Though my Spring BLT order is usually very sheng heavy I was a bit more selective this year with which samples I grabbed. Of course I got my reliable haul of Yiwu and Jingmai productions though, and I’ve already dipped into my Year Of The Rabbit cake. It was soft yet flavourful with more of the sweet and fruity notes that I’ve always loved from yiwu productions. As BLT notes themselves, the last few year’s pressings have had a bit more bite to them due to weather conditions. All still delicious, of course. However, based on this first impression I do feel this sort of ‘return’ to some of the earlier teas in the YOT series and I liked the familiarity of the tea a lot!
