From Old Ways Tea

金瓜子 (Gold melon seed). This tea is named after the leaves at harvest time. When the sprouts are starting to open, the outer two leaves revel the center bud. At this stage the leaves are like the shell of a sunflower seed.

This production started with 50kg of wet leaves picked from older trees of my cousin’s garden in Masu above Tongmu. The result is a unique tea produced from this early harvest of small pointed leaves. The dry leaves have a slight nutty fragrance while the soup is fairly thick for a black tea. When brewed quite strong the thickness further develops, some astringency emerges. The strong brew can be felt in the throat.

I am slow. And perpetually distracted, this week more than usual. Do you always alphabetize your flavor profiles? If you do, dear one, I am in more awe of you than ever!

Steeper always rearranges all the items input in the Flavor field into alphabetical order for display.

Mastress Alita: I didn’t know that! Neat, but also…I think I would want them in order of strength!

gmathis

I’m too loosey-goosey to use that particular feature, so I was clearly not paying attention :)

Evol Ving Ness

Loosely- here too. and I would prefer to go in terms of strength too, if I were prone to organizing them in any kind of way at all.

I have been marvelling at the posters who have been posting alphabetically. For me to be able to track down the exact tea I want is already a colossal achievement. Never mind the one’s I have forgotten about.

Also, this tea sounds stellar. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Loosely goosey. This auto correct is killing me.

gmathis

I think my phone auto correct has just given up on me, the way I make up words to suit the moment.
