Thanks LauraR! (And sorry it has taken me so long to get around to it!)

I’ve not actually had many Yunnans before, so I am quite excited about this. The leaves look lovely, with plenty of gold tips. Their scent is quite faint, but I am getting quite a sweet hay, spicy sort of scent.

The tea is somewhat fruity. I didn’t expect this, really. I mean, it isn’t really fruity, but has slight fruit hints. Otherwise, I can taste sweet hay, like in the scent, and also a peppery kick at the back end of the sip.

My love of tea began when I walked into a shop one day and they were giving out samples of jasmine silver needles. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have been addicted to tea ever since. Jasmine silver needles remains my favourite tea to this day.

I think my favourite types are white teas and oolongs, though I will pretty much drink anything.

Aside from tea, I’m into Star Wars, music, furniture, food, Lilly Dache hats and vintage clothing.
