I am enjoying every steeping I can squeeze out of these leaves. The dry rolled leaves are bright and unfurl beautifully, with a strong floral fragrance and hint of grassiness. I don’t feel the grassy flavor come across in the liquor. Instead, it’s a beautiful pale gold delight that doesn’t easily go astringent on me. Deep butter and cream flavors might make this my very favorite tieguanyin that I have yet to try. It’s even excellent cold should your toddlers distract you from your cup until it’s room temperature. I love the texture as you drink it, and the fantastic sweet “oil” that coats your tongue for a moment after. It’s perfect.
