Originally I bought this (type of) tea from a local shop. I wasn’t too impressed with it back then. Some time ago I saw the tin sitting in the back of my cupboard and decided to revisite. Since then I drank nearly the whole tin. On second try I do like this tea. After that I discovered a sample of this tea in my little green tea adventure from Tea-adventure. As I’m considering restocking and I. That case generally prefer Tea-adventure due to the favorable shipping conditions I decided to try this sample today.
Normally I go for a 3-minute soak. Today however I decided to stick to Tea-A’s recommendation. The result is a color wise full bodied tea (really yellow green) and taste wise soft, rounded taste with a sweetish tone reminiscent of white teas without the hay-ish overtures. Maybe a bit of green asparagus and butter?
Anyway, on second thought a really good tea and one I just might be reordering.
