So this is different… green tea from Yunnan? Didn’t even know the region produced green tea. The dry leaves are amazingly delicate looking, fine silvery-green twists. They smell like the Yunnan Golden Tips that I’ve also had from SanTion – caramelly and rich with a hint of strawberries – but the infusion tastes more like a Pi Lo Chun, though not quite as apricotty. The wet leaves have a scent that is kind of green-vegetal in the first infusion, more fruity/sweet from the second. The flavour follows suit – green-vegetal and quite rich, then a bit more fruity. Nice sweet aftertaste that lingers a little. This is a really tasty tea, I recommend it!
Yunnan Green Tea, Grade A
Deep-green leaves and white, furry buds create delicate, pale-green liquor. Leaves unfold beautifully with subsequent infusions.
Taste & aroma:
Distinctively fruity, penetrating flavour with hints of apricot. It offers a lingering citrus aftertaste and delicate, sweet scent.
