I have a few teas left that I never got around to from last year’s Lunar New Year “Tiger Box” from Volition Tea and Yao Cha Tea. As part of my effort to finish off my advent calendars, I’m trying to finish these too.

I steeped this one up gong fu style in my easy gaiwan from Butiki, RIP. I went with 175f, a quick rinse, and started with a 30 second infusion, increasing the time with each subsequent steep.

This was so good! Volition’s teas are pricy but I’ve found them to be consistently excellent, and this is no exception. It’s clover honey-sweet, with a thick mouthfeel and wonderful fresh green notes that come out more as it cools. It feels both decadent and bright at the same time, which has been really nice for a lazier-than-I should-be Sunday afternoon.

I’m a couple days late in saying it, but happy Lunar New Year to everyone on Steepster who may be celebrating!

This year I decided to pick up a “Tiger Box” (named after this year’s zodiac animal) from Volition Tea and Yao Cha Tea that includes tea samples to be enjoyed with the community over the next two weeks – this was the tea from day one! The tea is delicious with a thick creaminess to the liquor and fresh notes of cucumber pulp, snow peas, clotted cream and Timothy hay. Some of my favourite white tea tasting notes! I sipped it in a teacup with a tiger motif, in honor of the Year of The Tiger, and it was delicious for a couple different resteeps over the course of the morning.
