From Fortnum & Mason

Zhi Sun was the imperial tribute tea during the
Tang Dynasty and was regarded as the best tea
ever by the Tea Saint Lu Yu. The tea has a very
pleasing appearance, with just a hint of purple
tinge on some of the leaves. The flavour is light
and sweet, with floral orchid aroma

this one comes to me from Raritea Not my usual cup of tea, but i love trying out new things! :) this is a really smooth, light and refreshing tea. It leaves a weird feeling in my mouth after…almost drying. for sure some spinach notes to this…and there’s a sweet quality about it as well – i don’t get canteloupe like raritea did, but i can see how, in combination with the aroma, i could have that sense. over all an interesting tea to try! thanks Raritea!

Dry leaf has a strong floral/vegetal aroma.

Brewed tea has a strong vegetal aroma.

Flavour is mostly vegetal with a clean sugary fruity (cantaloupe) finish). Buttery notes in aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel with a very satisfying savoury note. As the tea cools, I am detecting a mild smoky note in the back of the throat- somewhat like charred asparagus.

Flavors: Cantaloupe, Fruity, Spinach
