I’m having a hard time uploading the pictures. Anyway, this was another favorite that I did not write about for some reason last year…before last year. Spring 2019. I’ve mentally combined 2020 and 2021. Man is that nuts. Almost two years ago. It was an early sipdown, and therefore…this is an old backlog. I wish I wrote something down because I remembered tasting all kinds of changes in the finish in each session.

I followed the guidelines of 55, 45, 55, and longer and longer, along with other sessions with less water, shorter times of 30 sec, and grandpa sessions. Green bean is pretty good for this one, but it bears a lot of similarities to Lishan and Cuifeng, especially in the alpine mountain air category. Sometimes, it reminded me of dew. I remember the 2019 season being fresh, and in the category of vegetal done right. The mental justifications of this tea being more than vegetal were lemon verbana and lime in hints. Sometimes, I got more marine qualities and pineapple, though vaguely. I’m not sure how accurate that is, but it’s the impression I remember on top of the sweet finish and the refreshing clean quality of the tea. Only thing is it’s a little pricey, so I save for the other hard hitters Wang Family Tea has as I go through “I must try all the teas before I go back to civilization” Covid phase.

Random reflection: I’m extremely contradictory on vegetal teas and whether I like vegetal notes like Goldilocks. I’ve used the same notes for teas that I’ve been bored with, nevermind I was enthralled by this one. It was super well balanced, and I think the experience was enhanced by the fact it was the beginning of a better school year than my first year teaching.

And on the back to civilization blurb, I study civilization for a living as a social studies teacher, but I really don’t like interacting with living civilization…so the dead keep good company…man I made that dark. I think that’s a sign I need to drink some lighter tea. Onto some white tea! (Or lie and just go to a bit lighter oolong ‘cause I’m basic and need a hint of darkness in my tea.)
