Tonight feels like a good night to sample this tea. Thank you David and Verdant Tea for this sample!
Dry: Smells very sweet, and the most beautiful and interesting leaves! I’m excited =)
3.7g, 4oz, 190F, 20s: Sweet and delicate. Small notes of pine dew, which remind me of my favourite Silver Buds Yabao.. a creaminess or silky texture. Spicy notes too, though mild. There is some drying qualities at the back of the throat. But wow. Cinnamon pine with a salty edge. So complex. My last small cupful cooled..it became thick pine dew and its texture which reminded me of just sightly undercooked okra. I really don’t mind that texture at all. Huffing the cup smells like rose honey. Delightful.
15s: Oh my floral! It’s like I just shoved a rose in my mouth. Shocking.. I wasn’t expecting rose flavours to that intensity. Very juicy flavour profile too.
25s: Silky jasmine pine that quickly becomes malty.

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
