This is better on the second steeping. Those sharp, bright green notes soften up quite a bit, and the resulting cup is mellow, round and not at all floral. I’m still not getting this sense of Earth that so many others have, but given how much Yunnan golden and pu-erh I drink, my idea of “earthy” may simply be a lot further down the spectrum than others’.

I think if my leaves were fresher, or this were a higher quality tea over all, this would have that slightly thick, sticky, brothy kind of mouth feel that marks truly excellent lighter teas such as this one, but because of where and how my leaves were sourced I cannot make any statement about whether this tea was one that good or no.
