Medium steep; I taste/smell: light peaches (?). medium
-> asparagus, sweet grass, veggies, bitterness (meh) freshly cut grass.
(•groans•… Must I do a heavy steep? This tea is stale and not too fresh. I blame myself for forgetting about it. But review I must. At least the flecks around the teapot look pretty. )
Heavy steep; I taste/smell; light
-> peaches (?), asparagus, sweet grass, freshly cut grass. Medium to strong bitterness. (This steep did not turn out nearly as bad as I thought it would)
All in all a nice tea even though it’s kind of stale and not too fresh. (I still blame myself for not reviewing it sooner) ok flavours and aromas. Weird cha qi. I rate a 75. only because it was yummy when it was fresh. Otherwise, I would rate a 50.
I’m not sure if I ordered this or if it was a gift from Paola Mannaro.
