The dry leaves smell like super fresh grass with a bit of bitterness in the background. I am brewing this tea in my Yixing pot so some of the bitterness that would normally be in this tea might be cut down. My ratio is also lower then it normally is because I only have a sample of this tea. I did two quick washes and then my first steep was around 5 seconds long.
The first steep brewed up very lightly. This brew is a bit light but still has an abundance of flavor. At the forefront of this tea there is quite a bit of fruityness like cherries. In the middle there is this extremely pleasant bitter metalic taste. I know that this does not seem like the most appealing of descriptions but it tastes extremely bright and light and the tastes dance on your tongue bouncing back and forth between this wonderful fruityness and this light metal taste. On the aftertaste the tea delves into a very pleasant sweetness, not like honey or a sugar sweetness but a very pleasant sweetness nonetheless. Later steeps bring out even more complexities in the flavor. This is a very delicious tea that if you can get your hands on I would highly suggest you do. That being said, I can’t find it anymore on their website so I don’t know if that is a possibility anymore.
