I received this tea as part of Steepster’s Monthly Tasting Notes sampler pack, and
I decided to begin with this one since I had enjoyed sampling a lychee tea of similar quality.

Liquor color is gold
Leaves color are green on one side and not quite silvery but darker on the other side
Aroma soft fruit, hinting to melon

This tea is made to be refreshing and drunken easily; it is light in body with no astringent. In steeping this tea for just 2 minutes with several infusions yielding each time a refreshing, easy drinking tea that is full of soft fruit flavors and melon notes. I did not find any sweetness lingering as in description; perhaps the absence of astringent one can derive at describing it as sweet and mild.

Over all tea is very soft and does not leave any lasting impression. it is subdued tea, if there is such a thing.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
