This is a tricky tea: when perfectly brewed, it is delicate, floral, peachy, delightful. Steep too hot or too long and it does get bitter; steep with too much leaf and again there’s risk of bitter; but steep too little, and then it tastes thin and light.

It’s been a long time since I’ve weighed out this tea, which probably explains some of my problems with it, because it is a light, fluffy, irregular tea composed of very different sized pieces.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea for 30 years, but only bought 2 brands of 2 different teas for most of that time. It took me almost 30 years to discover sencha, puerh, and green oolongs. Now I am making up for lost time.

I try to log most of my teas at least once, but then get lazy and stop recording, so # times logged should not be considered as a marker of how much a particular tea is drunk or enjoyed.
