Tea sent via the monthly tea club, so relatively small quantity.
Prep: 60cc gaiwan, almost full, boiling water, 10s, 10, 30, 30, 30, 45, 60
Sessions with this tea: 2
Taste: This is primarily a fragrance lover’s tea. Medium-spectrum malt and roast notes, some light fruitiness. There’s not much to the taste of this one for me though. But the fragrance pours off of it and fill room with rich floral notes.
Body: Medium mouthfeel, not as thick as I look for. Not much playfulness across the tongue. Not much minerality to this one either. Really not much at all going on in the body of this one.
Ultimately this tea is too light and delicate for my taste, and doesn’t steep out as long as I would like. I do enjoy fragrant teas, and this tea would be excellent for oolong lovers who love chasing brightness in their tea.
