Another Jing sample that has been left unsteeped in my cupboard for way too long.
The tea whilst raw consists of thinly rolled green leaves that have a sweet and vegetal aroma. Very similar to some green teas I have had before with the same sweet pea affair.
Once steeped the tea is extremely pale yellow (so much so it takes a keen eye to detect any colour change at all). The scent is still vegetal and sweet, almost fruity.
The flavour is very gentle and sweet with a natural green flavour. It’s also vegetal tasting similar to peas or fresh spinach. There is a hint of flowers along the lines of peony.
It actually reminds me very much of Bu Luo Chun. http://steepster.com/teas/dragon-tea-house/16747-bi-luo-chun
While it’s a nice tea it’s just not unique and special for me so I don’t think I would re order it.
