From Song Tea & Ceramics

An organic spring green tea commissioned from a garden in Northern Fujian. Crafted from a small leaf cultivar, hand-picked in late March, and airshipped to maintain freshness from field to cup. Beautiful young leaves fuse the aroma of sweet grass with the clarity of early morning dew drops.

These wiry dark green leaves certainly are fragrant. The scent of the dry leaves in a warm gaiwan reminds me of almond cookies, or what I’d imagine a fortune cookie to smell like fresh from the oven. My favorite green tea happens to be from Fujian, like these leaves, so I’m excited.

This tea starts out quite sweet on the initial infusion, always a good sign with green teas. It definitely has a dew flavor to it, as described by the vendor. It reminds me of the water from within a cucumber or melon. It’s also very smooth going down.

On the second infusion, it’s still really sweet with a distinct cucumber-melon flavor, though there’s also something light in the background resembling roasted corn. Compared to the Gan Lu I just tried from Song Tea, this tea retained a lot more sweetness in the second infusion and didn’t get as intensely vegetal.

On the third infusion I’m getting some notes of nutmeg and hazelnut. The flavor is really unfolding nicely here, and it’s still nicely sweet and clean. By the fourth or fifth infusion the flavor is piddling out a bit, but this was a nice tea experience and yielded some great infusions.

I just looked at their teawares this morning…I’m in love with a teapot that I can’t afford ;)

I have to stay away from teawares right now. I had to unsubscribe from one of my favorite tea shop’s mailing list today because every time I get an email I end up spending half a paycheck at their shop. Hahaha.
