I feel like it’s taken multiple sessions over time for me to develop a better appreciation for this tea. Steeped up what will probably be my second to last session with this tea in a red clay teapot yesterday.

I drank it from the first steep without washing, so the initial steep was extremely light , but clean and sweet. As the tea darkened it became thick and smooth, with some mineral notes and an interesting cooling sensation offsetting the warm, creamy body.

Since I only got a couple of steeps in before it was time to leave work I tossed the leaves into my thermos and filled it with boiling water. It kept warm overnight and I finished it this morning. Still nice and smooth with an easy to drink sweetness, thick mouthfeel and that distinct cooling sensation.

I am glad I spent some more time with this tea and I think it is a nice daily drinker.

I like tea, mostly unflavored. I drink all tea, with a preference for teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, with some exceptions.

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
