From Camellia Sinensis

Sichuan lavishness us with green teas with fine downy buds.

Damp leaves fill the air with sweet gourmet (hazelnut) and marine fragrances. Its delicate green liquor is dense and rich with aromas of green vegetables (roasted fiddle-heads) and fruity nuances.

A generous tea offering a luxurious velvety texture as well as a sweet and floral finish.

[Spring 2021 harvest]

Fresh green teas are always something to look forward in the spring (if one can get hold of some). Even though this one isn’t the most remarkable one, it certainly satisfies that need.

The profile is quite vegetal with floral, umami, sour and herbaceous notes trailing behind. Some of the flavours to be found are eucalyptus, alfalfa, lilac, kohlrabi. In the aftertaste, a mix of lime and green wood sweetness emerges. The liquor texture is velvety thanks to the large amount of leaf hair present, but it also has a nice bubbly quality. After swallowing, a minor drying sensation remains, but there isn’t really any astringency. The aromas are hard to describe. Some of the notes I’ve already mentioned – such as lime zest and eucalyptus – but there is also a scent that reminds me of moss covered in dew.
