A big thank you to ScottTeaMan for sending me this one to try!
When I first opened the envelope I was surprised at how much this looks like a yellow tea I tried from Upton a while back. The leaves are certainly not as green as they are in the photo.
I tried to follow the steeping parameters accurately – 1 1/2 tsp @ 3 minutes in infuser mug.
It was kind of fun to watch a few of my leaves open up. This is a very light infusion for a green tea and definitely more on the delicate side with a nice sweetness in the finish. I’m getting a bit of a corn husk flavor. This is enjoyable and very nice for the afternoon although my personal preference is for a green tea with a lot more heft and body. I don’t think I would buy it for myself after trying it, but it’s good!
This was fun to try and I will definitely save the rest of it for another quiet moment in the afternoon where it seems very appropriate. Very relaxing for a green tea.
