Thanksgiving day tea! :) Semi-gongfu style. The dry leaves have this really distinct luster.
1st steep (1min 30sec)
The liquor has a distinct pea smell. It is very light and has that sweet tone I love. Oh this would taste perfect with melons or strawberries paired with it. This is actually stronger than I was expecting it to be. It’s very smooth and has no bitterness. This steep really woke the leaves up! They smell so different after the 1st steep. Very verdant smelling.
2nd steep (2 min)
Still very light and green. This time there was a bit heavier taste on the palate. It is still very sweet and reminds me of spring. This time it also seems to be begging to be paired with green fruit. I’m totally sad I don’t have any of these things lying around. Good thing I have a lot of this left! :)
3rd steep (2min 30 sec) final steep for now because I have to get going to Thanksgiving!
Light and sweet. I love this tea! I wouldn’t have picked it for myself, but got it for free from a member of another board. It really hung in there and I think it could do more steeps if time permitted.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
