Elixir Arya Second Flush '10
DRY LEAVES: The elongated lime green leaves with a yellow tone and some lustrous silver tips is a satisfying sight. The leaves are well-rolled, neat, wiry and evenly sized with a nice bloom.
INFUSION: Large unfolded leaves with a healthy sparkle, and a nose of fresh tender greeness, and a sweetness reminiscent of boiled apples, results in great anticipation for the cup itself.
CUP: A pale lemon liquor with a mellow taste. There is a warm floral note and a slight bitterness, both coming together for a delicious effect that is rarely found in green teas.
BREWING TIME: 3-5 minutes
OCCASION: Makes a wonderful cup anytime. Enjoy with a bowl of freshly cut fruits.
