I didn’t know that this was a yellow tea before I tried it. I placed it with my white tea samples. I was surprised to see the deeper green tea leaves and thought it could be a green, but I steeped as I would a white. 165/1.5 min

The color is so light that I thought for a moment that my Breville didn’t drop the basket. The scent, too, is barely there. There is the slightest hint of sweetness in the scent and perhaps a vegetal tone, but it’s so light that I can barely tell.

The taste… wow! From the first sip, I’m blown away. It’s so very light, but with a punch of sweetness at the end. The flavor gradually fills your mouth. At first, I thought it must be just watery, but not with this finish. It’s really wonderful. I can taste a vegetal flavor, but it’s different. It’s nutty, but with a sweet/savory taste of perhaps squash. It’s a great combination of flavors. Nature really knows what she’s doing.

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
