Another Jing sample that has been left unsteeped in my cupboard for way too long.

The tea whilst raw consists of thinly rolled green leaves that have a sweet and vegetal aroma. Very similar to some green teas I have had before with the same sweet pea affair.

Once steeped the tea is extremely pale yellow (so much so it takes a keen eye to detect any colour change at all). The scent is still vegetal and sweet, almost fruity.

The flavour is very gentle and sweet with a natural green flavour. It’s also vegetal tasting similar to peas or fresh spinach. There is a hint of flowers along the lines of peony.

It actually reminds me very much of Bu Luo Chun.

While it’s a nice tea it’s just not unique and special for me so I don’t think I would re order it.

1st Infusion:

I had thought the tasting notes on this tea provided by Jing (“graceful, sappy…”) were a bit pretentious, but I can really understand why this tea is described as graceful now I’ve tasted it. Grace implies balance and this tea is very well balanced between sweetness, freshness and tanin. It is quite refreshing and I can see this becoming my breakfast tea for when I don’t need a strong caffeine hit.

Its a good tea. I except that, and if you’ve never had a yellow tea before than this is a great introduction. Yellow teas to me remind me of a green tea that someone brewed with water that was too hot, and maybe a slight mixture of sheng (raw) young pu-erhs.

Quite a unique way of saying…it tastes a little burnt and metallic, but that is to be expected of yellow teas (or at least the couple others I’ve tried).
