This is another gift from my daughter, Superanna, who just returned from Disney. She brought me this and chocolate puerh, and said that the chai they serve has ruined her for any other chai.
We made a total of four small pots of this tea, resteeping the leaves once. I want to try multiple steeps and see how long it retains its flavor.
The leaves live up to the name. They are a soft green covered with downy white fuzz. I took one bit of leaf out and broke it in two to see the separate folded young leaves. I popped the leaves in my mouth to enjoy the flavor as I write my note. I love the taste.
The liquor was lightly golden and tasted of sun warmed hay. It is creamy and I also get a hint of tender green spring vegetables. This is really delicious and the resteep was, also. I think I could get more steeps from it but I didn’t want to risk it when serving it to lots of people especially with this being the first time I have made it. We made 144 ounces of puerh tonight and about 56 ounces of this one. I think we should be a pretty well hydrated crowd.
