a great tea!
(click link below to see pictures.)
when i smell the leaves/peel dry, i smell melons.
when i smell the leaves/peel wet, i smell fruit and melons.
when i smell the brewed tea, i smell fruit, melons and spices.
when i taste the brewed tea, i taste fruit, melons, slight bitterness (from the bitter melon) and spices.
the color of the brewed tea is a dark amber to light brown.
i rate this tea a 90 because its very strong.
at the moment im heavily calm and relaxed from all the tea i drank today, some call it tea-drunk but id rather not call it that.
many thanks to Scot Wilson and Yunnan sourcing for the lovely sample.
here are some pics from an earlier session
Flavors: Bitter, Bitter Melon, Fruity, Melon, Spices
