If you haven’t yet checked out iteaworld (either their company or tea) I highly suggest you do both. Anne has been kind enough to supply me with a sample of this tea as well as some others and I really am impressed with many different facets of this company. I also decided to do an unboxing video on tiktok.

I highly suggest sticking to the suggested infusion time in order to fully enjoy all the tea has to offer without worrying about ruining it. The bitter tannins will punch you in the face.

Update: I’ve opened the second package of this one. I’ve only tried two of the teas so far and for some reason, this was calling out my name again. I’ve raised the score on this because I don’t think I appreciated the flavors the first time as much. In the west we’ve become so acclimated to teas that steep in bags or steep longer that steeping for seconds is something that takes a while to master. This is a good tea for that type of practice.

Dry leaf: Twisted tightly with some slight curl. The aroma isn’t quite as strong as I was hoping but there is some lingering hay and veggie notes.
Wet leaf: Still twisted with the first infusion but slowly opening. Aroma of stone fruits and veggies and a very slight hint of camphor.
Flavor: Very vegetal. Fresh asparagus, cooked green beans. These are prevalent in each of the three infusions I’ve done thus far. Only the first showed the strongest notes of stone fruit and slight cream.
Please do go check out this tea and more here: (https://iteaworld.com/products/chinese-tea-sampler?ref=ay9eddnn

I’m a purist but I will try a flavored as long as it doesn’t have artificial flavors.

I will drink any type and love to taste whatever I can get my hands on.

(Purple is not a type of tea it is a cultivar known as TRFK 306/1)
