I haven’t posted any teas in a while, because I’ve been getting into the smaller boutique products. This comes from Silk Road Teas, and it’s a new product for them.
The tea comes in a small cake, suitable for brewing in a larger teapot rather than just one cup. I used my medium-sized teapot, and the cake was a bit too much for the steeping basket. Still, it worked.
The tea: a lightly scented (honey-like, as the description indicates), pale yellow tea. The flavor is subtly sweet, not grassy at all, but smooth. I detect a bit of flowery taste, but nothing too strong.
I made the mistake of ordering just one cake (forgot to update after increasing the number!), but will be ordering this again soon. It is a lovely tea, and perfect for a quiet morning when you can sit down and really sip slowly and thoughtfully. It does require quiet and attention, as the flavor is so subtle. This is not for drinking on the go.
