The dry leaf smells awesome. Creamy, sweet and rich. It smelled so great I hunted down the husband to make him smell it. The powerful smell, however, doesn’t last through the brewing. It still smells nice but it is pretty faint – I might have accidentally dunked my nose in the tea trying to get close enough to get a good smell so yeah, that faint. But fear not! All that yummy smell did not simply go poof. Oh no – it was turned into taste. Sweet in a green, fresh way with zero astringency and an oh so pretty (though kinda brief) aftertaste. It just tastes so fresh and sweet, almost fruity. There’s a fibrous taste as it cools, like eating a thicker green veggie. Uh oh. My cup is empty. Can’t have that.

The second steep (2:30) is a bit heavier and richer but not quite as fruity sweet, or maybe just a different, heavier fruit.

Third steep (3:30) and the flavor has changed a bit again. This time I am oddly reminded of a mild Yunnan. It’s weird, I don’t get it, but that’s what is coming to mind with the rich but light feel and sweetness of this tea.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
