Argh, someone remind me to edit this later. The company is meant to be Simpli Special!

The dried leaves live up to their ‘eyebrow’ nickname. The aroma of this tea was quite understated for me, although it does replicate the taste. It created a pale tea between yellow and amber, sligthly darker than expected despite following recommended brewing technique.

The taste was the same as I expected from a Chun Mee. The nut hits you, and then the smokiness joins it subtly, and before you release it you’re finishing with a slight sweetness just before the flavour melts away.

To me this seems more like a tea to help you get up and do things, rather than some lighter/sweeter/flowery green teas. I would definitely prefer this as an everyday tea rather than saving it for times of relaxation. It’s got an initial punch with the flavour that really helps you focus!

Update: Upon second steeping the aroma was much sweeter! It was very pleasant. The taste of the liquor wasn’t quite as smokey as the first time, and this helped to bring out the natural sweetness here too. Maybe it is just the way I’m brewing it, but it seems like an interesting main course and then pudding combination in one set of leaves.
