I purchased this tea from the Ann Arbor TeaHaus tonight and thought it might make a nice evening tea. (Not too much caffeine.) It has a pleasant scent, nothing very notable, just a fresh fragrance.

Steeped at 160 for 2 minutes. It’s a golden yellow color. Maize? (Any coincidence, University of Michigan?) Anyway, once brewed, it’s scent is more difficult to discern. I can’t detect any fresh lychee fruit in the aroma. In tasting it, yes, it’s there, but it’s oh so light. The white tea as well is there. It’s a delicate tea. There’s nothing robust about it, so I think it does make a nice evening cup of tea. I wouldn’t say it’s fruity or floral (there are cute little rosebuds in it); it’s just delicate and nice.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 2 min, 0 sec
