Kiani Tea Advent Calendar 2021 – Day 17
This is a very interesting one.
The leaves are a beautiful green, but it steeped up a pale golden color. The flavor reminds me a bit of Long Jing, nutty and a bit creamy with a buttery note. But there’s also a rich squash-like flavor to it, or maybe sweet potato. There are subtle hints of mineral and smoke as well, and a touch of stonefruit at the end of the sip. It’s somewhat vegetal, but in a creamy edamame sort of way.
Overall, a yummy and very rich tea! It almost tastes like some sort of fusion between green, white, and Yunnan black teas.
