This wonderful tea arrived in my mailbox yesterday.
The leaves are thin, tiny and curly. Very green with little tiny white hairs.
I brewed this in my gaiwan and used a strainer to pour it from the gaiwan to my teacup, but, I’m happy to report that very few of the leaves (maybe 3?) escaped.
The flavor is very fresh, sweet and fruity. I am really liking this a lot. It is certainly an excellent tea to enjoy with the spicy Szechuan food that I’m eating for dinner. Fire-y hot (and delicious) tamed by the sweet cup of tea. A really lovely culinary experience.
