Picked a random pack from my Canton sampler :)
Is a little sleepy, so my review will be short and lacking in details.
Leafs are nice, green and hairy. Erhm… and somehow they defy gravity and stays at the top of the cup. Maybe it’s because I was to lazy to preheat the cup before steeping. Or maybe it has issues. “I am too good for this cup. Now get me your finest porcelain.”-ish issues.
How to describe the aroma?
First thing that comes to mind is ASSAM, but no way in hell this is assam. I must be craving or something. Anyway… First sip screams: ASSAM, but no. It can’t be. This is a white silver needle soooo far from assam as it’s possible.
The only thing you can trust me for is that this tea really is green/white, hairy and that the liquid is very bright. Sweet tasting.
The rest – look away from it. I’ll write another tasting note for this when I have dealt with my ASSAM! craving.
Funny thing is… I really don’t like assam that much.
