From Camellia Sinensis

Two principal elements make this tea rare and unusual. Firstly, it has been made using yellow tea techniques and secondly, it originates from our neighbouring country, the United States. The founders of the farm have been cultivating tea there since 2012 and their practices are steeped in farm history, research and challenge.

The artisanal plucking and processing result in large leaves with stems. The smooth liquor has vegetal flavours of yellow beans and potatoes, and some surprisingly spicy notes of miso and mustard.

A tea for the curious.

The early steeps have such a distinctly sweet and tangy umami snap to them that makes me think of honey mustard. It’s very unlike anything I’ve tasted in a yellow tea before, and also wickedly delicious. The back end is nuttier and more traditionally like the yellow teas that I know and love, and as I pushed the session and the mustard seed elements waned I found the nuttiness slowly built along with a more bean-y vegetal note.

I’ve wanted to try Mississippi grown tea for a whole now, as currently the only other US grown Camellia Sinensis I’ve come across is from Hawaii. I’m definitely glad I snagged this at the MTL tea fest because I think it was worth it just for that striking mustard note alone!
