This is definitely the WRONG time for me to be tasting such a delicate tea for the first time-I’ve got a cold and my sense of taste and smell have definitely been deadened a bit. I was determined to taste a cup today anyway, because I’m placing a Verdant order today. (Last day of Laoshan teas 25% off!) Thanks so much for including this in our swap BrewTEAlly Sweet!

My first steep has a pine/spicy note. Completely unlike anything I’ve ever tasted! I would call this steep savory and not sweet.

2nd steep and the spicy pine note has blossomed a bit more. The liquor feels thick but tastes so light!

I’m definitely going to need to at least get another sample of this when I order today, so I can try it again when my palette is clear.

I feel like I’m tasting the secret heart of the tree. Something pure and wild and normally meant only for itself. This may not end up being something I want to drink every day, but it is definitely something I’d like to explore in more detail! Thanks again BrewTEAlly Sweet!!!

Even with your nose all stuffed up, your note has one of my favorite descriptions of this tea! “I feel like I’m tasting the secret heart of the tree” beautifully said- glad you’re getting another sample of this one

Thanks, Lily! I’m never sure how it is going to come across when I get abstract or poetic in my tasting notes, but this is how the tea made me feel :)
