Tea of the afternoon…… (SRP #27)
This is my first yellow tea! It comes from my foodzie box from LiberTEAS.
Brewing parameters for this are very similar to green teas. Leaves are long, and bright yellow-green, and somewhat curled inward toward the center spine. I used about 170 water for three minutes. I am amazed how much this reminds me of Long Jing. I think similar to Long Jing but not nearly as vegetal. It has the buttery mouth feel, but not super heavy buttery like some oolongs. I can drink this one without adding sweetener which is a bonus.
Very lovey and enjoyable. Just what I needed was another kind of tea that I need to buy!
Mug method with 170 water for 2 minutes. No additions.
