From Infussion

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to find refreshment just by smelling the tea? Experience it for yourself with this quality Lin Yun. The flavor of the brew is vegetative, sweet and crisp. If you like strong green tea flavor without any false notes – this one is for you.

Backlog:

I was pretty disappointed when I attempted to access the Infussion website and could not … did this company go kaput already? That would really be a shame because I really have enjoyed the teas that I’ve had from them.

This is a really delightful green tea. Sweet, clean tasting, vegetative, with a really delicious crispness that is invigorating.

I still have a lot of Infussion teas in my collection that I have yet to try, it could be because the company is no more and I would be devastated if I end up loving one of their teas and had no way to buy more of it.

This Lin Yun is beautifully reflective and shiny with plenty of silver tips present. It has a sweet, green, floral scent.

Weight – 7g
Teapot – 200ml/8oz Gongfu
Temperature – 75℃
Steeping Times – (as suggested on the packet) 30s, 45s, 90s

First Steep – 30s – Mild and sweet in scent which reminds me of honeysuckle. Flavour is very mild but contains floral, sweet, creamy and green notes.

Second Steep – 45s – A little astringent and with stronger flavour now. Also a little dry and perfumed in the after taste. Still sweet and floral but now with a mineral green flavour amongst it. Still has a creamy element about it.

Third Steep – 90s – A nice balanced steep in terms of strength and flavour. Still slightly astringent but remains floral, sweet and mineral tasting. Less creamy than previously but more dry.

After the three steeps I can note that the leaves have mostly broken up into smaller pieces and there are a lot of stalks and thick mid leaf stems. Also some of the leaves have a slight red discolouration around the edges and stem area.

I did enjoy this tea, a nice every day tea that would be easy to consume large quantities of. Such a shame…this is exactly what I didn’t want to happen. I have enough for one more pot of this tea and then it’s goodbye tasty green.
