From Capital Tea Ltd.

Medium sized uniform wiry green leaves with ample silver buds. These sweetly aromatic leaves infuse to produce a soft, smooth and mellow tasting tea with prominent apricot and plum-like notes. An excellent choice for moderately priced green tea.

This tea is a really nice blend between the sweet and savoury. It’s scent is blend between bright fruit and light smoke and once brewed it releases a perfume of smoke,rich, sweet plum, sweet corn/ pea note and a hint of spice.

I brewed this tea four times (45, 55, 70, 100s).

The dry leaf are dark olive to khaki tightly twisted wiry inch long leaves that produce a golden yellow brew.

The tea is smooth. The first notes are savoury, with light smoke, salted butter, a roasted vegetable note (sweet green pea mixed with a slight bitter spinach), over honeyed plum, pepper and a hint of nutmeg. The aftertaste is sweet plum intensifying under a light spinach note. The tea has a rich creamy texture and maintains a consistent flavour over ateeps with only the light smoke dissipating while the rest of the tea sweetens.

The tea offers a really nice value. It has really nice fruity aspects, a thick texture and a pleasant savoury note. Another really nice tea from Capital Tea Ltd! Once again thanks for the sample.

Backlog note 7 of 13.

This was another tea that I sampled when I was at the Canadian Coffee and Tea show on Sunday. And the nice thing was that there was another tea enthusiast there called TJ. He runs a tea podcast – that sounds so neat! I need to email him about that.

Anyways, Joel at the booth was kind enough to let us sample a variety of green teas, and I was intrigued by this one since I have some Yunnan blacks at home that I quite enjoy.

After trying this tea, I think I’m going to stick with the Yunnan blacks and avoid greens, because while the smokiness works in black tea, I find I don’t like smoky flavours in green tea. I could taste the similarity, though, and the liquor was a beautiful yellow-green.
