The first time I had this, I really liked it. This cup, however, just seems weak, even after cooling. I used the same amount of leaf as I always do, so I don’t know what happened. What’s there is fairly vegetal with hints of florals, but none of the butteriness from before. Unfortunately I don’t have enough leaf for another cup (what’s left is destined to be “blended” in a cold brew) so I’m sad that this had to be my last experience with this sample since my first one was so good. Oh well.

I still consider myself new to the world of loose tea. A few months ago I was still buying teabag packages from supermarkets. In the past few months, I had mixed experience with loose tea. Some were very good while others were worse than the cheap teabags I was acustomed to. This Golden Osmanthus tea from DeRenTea was among the ones that set my standard for good loose tea. My tea vocabulary is few. I would say this tea has a pleasing floral note, is light, and refreshing. I had this tea hot and iced, both exceeded my expectation.

I made a cup of this tea with the sample pack I got from DeRen Tea today. I smelled the tea before I steep it and it was a little vegetal and a little floral. The tea was light golden yellow. The aroma was creamy? or buttery? or somewhere inbetween, with a hint of floral sweetness. The taste was light, clean, and a little buttery initially. I didn’t taste the floral note with the tea in my mouth. But after I swallow the tea, there was a floral aftertaste in my mouth. It was quite interesting. It was a pleasant surprise. It was… great.
