I’m happy with this tea.My wife made the comment that she detected hints of floral smells to the dry leaf.I was surprised at how quikly it unfurled,big leaves.Noticing leafless stems had me a little concerned,but that quickly diminished.Amber color was a bit cloudy(may have been my water). The sweetness in dry leaf was only slightly present after infuse,but definitely enough to appreciate.The was very smooth yet at the same time dry.Grassy aftertaste;bold yet not strong/astringent enough to call barley,maybe hay if that could be interpreted as something not offensive. The tune was Bob Dylan-Wicked Messenger

Dave here.
I’m trying to get back into the swing of things as far as writing reviews. my tastes have changed greatly from when I was last on here, Now I typically drink sheng puerhs daily, though I’m really looking forward to getting enough good blacks to equally divide my time between the two. I occasionally drink white, yellow, & greens but still stay away from blends & non-camellia sinensis. I’m no authority & always welcome suggestions.

I’m a wimp when it comes to astringency so take anything I say about this characteristic with a grain of salt(ASTRINGENCY WEENIE MAN, or AWM for short).

Other ramblings;
About tunes; I, like many, love them. I like adding them to my notes, but I feel like if someone were, let’s say knitting or painting or reading a book, that it would help the readers to get a better feel for how the writer may be impressioned about his environment toward his tea experience.

I wish I would have paid more attention to the grammer teachers so many years ago and not doodling band insignias. I should revisit the proper use of commas for starters, which I love.
I also love, and probably over use, parenthesis (the use of them may be a second personality coming to surface).
