New tasting with the spring harvest!
The leaves on this one are fluffy, but kind of twisted. The dry leaf has a light, sweet smell to it. Brewed, it is a bit more brothy and vegetal. I found that this tea was not as mild as before, but I anticipated that and added in a little more leaf. I am not sure that was wise, but it wasn’t un-wise. I did get a stronger flavour with more leaf, but maybe I had wanted something a little lighter after all. I think I lost out on some of the sweetness I smelled in the dry leaf that way.
I’m not good at describing subtle tastes in tea, so I can’t make out what veggies it tastes like, but it was a little more savoury than the sweet that I was expecting.
This tasting was better than the previous, I think. I’m not sure if it is because it is a different harvest, or the brewing parameters changed.
Many thanks to Angel at Teavivre for providing this sample for review.
