Another tea from the GM sampler. I used my Adagio tasting set to brew up this tea, and was impressed I was able to pour the tea into the cup without spilling most of it :) I love how these leaves unfurl, they get so large!
The leaves smell like rice to me, maybe rice steeped in coconut milk, but rice is the first thought that comes to mind. Brewed the scent is even stronger. It reminds me of the rice the Thai shop near my last job made. The taste is sweeter, has more coconut taste to it. This would be a good accompaniment to a homecooked meal of curry. I like how unique this tea is, I really haven’t tasted anything like it. It’s much different than a milk oolong flavor. I plan to try multiple steeps.
