8 Tasting Notes
absolutely my favorite tea. I wish Jade leaves still existed! :-(
very delicate tea – treat accordingly so you can taste the more subtle notes :-)
otherwise ends up very vegetal but still quite drinkable just not the superior tea it is!
very smooth and soothing
not too harsh or bold
but kinda misses the risker aspects of my favorite
Comforting – perfect for flying.
It really opens up on the 2-3 steeping with caramel notes that I love.
very energetic tea even without the caffeine.
This and milky oolong are my two favorite teas.
a nicer pu-erh
though I like to remind everyone that even a looseleaf pu-erh benefits from a quick hot water “wash” before steeping. A wonderful trick I learned from @alaw
though unfortunate mine is not this vintage of 2009…
so a bit weaker though I must note that for a white tea this has held on much longer than I would have expected.
one of my favs esp the 3rd steeping
it becomes down right creamy melting
