2014 Pre-Qing Ming – Yunnan Province China
Wow!!! The dry leaves are so attractive, light moss green and white delicate threads. All uniform and the scent is fresh, Spring scent, hay, greens, nutty.
The liquor is a light champagne color with scents of butter bean, fresh spring peas and vegetables. Each leaf has opened up to be a perfect light Spring green bud. Very pretty.
So fresh and loving the chance to taste this new tea. The flavor is buttered peas with chestnuts. It is like green tea and white tea together. There is a natural sweetness that resembles white tea and then the green tea is nutty and a subtle buttery pea with no bitter or astringent qualities. This is really really delicious green tea!!! Probably one of the best I have ever tasted.
Having a cup this afternoon. This is a great green tea to pair with a savory snack or meal. It is buttery peas flavor with an accent of chestnut or almond and even has a bit of salinity to it. The dry leaf is gorgeous too.
Flavors: Butter, Chestnut, Lima Beans, Peas
