From Camellia Sinensis

Origin: Vietnam

Long buds from old wild tea trees compose this green tea of northern Vietnam. Its light yellow liquor is lively with its fragrances of fruit and vegetable (artichoke). Light and sweet, it has a powdery (icing sugar) and mineral texture, reflecting the downy and wild nature of its young buds. The finish is pleasantly long, floral and refreshing! For all fans of young sheng Pu Er and white teas.

I wasn’t sure at first whether to buy this or not, but when I showed the photo to my husband he insisted that we get it. Now onto our initial tasting notes;

First steep: light, straw or hay flavour with a nice grainy texture and hint of sweetness.

Second steep: sweeter, has a fuzzy buds texture. (if you know what I mean)

Third steep: bolder, more vegetal and reminds me of green tea a bit more now.

Overall from my initial steeping of this tea, I like it. It is a very new type of experience for me. Not a fav but still enjoyable.

100ml gaiwan, 2tsp, 3 steeps (40s, 50s, 1m)

The leaves kind of look like smushed cigarettes.

No matter how many times I brew this tea or how many different measurements/water temperatures I try, I can’t get it to be very flavourful. What flavour it has is pleasant, but it just doesn’t taste like much. Trying hotter water than recommended only brought out a blandly unpleasant bitterness, as did increasing the steep time too much. I’m used to better from Camellia Sinensis; their teas are usually quite exciting. Best results at 85c / 3 minutes 30 seconds.
