I opened the small sample size pack of this and loved the faint scent that rose from it; it smelled like an early spring day, when things are just starting to get green and grow. (My nose is working mostly now. yay.)
I added water and I was immediately surrounded in this green envelope of aroma. I could taste it in the air.
I steeped this western style in my ForLife mug. I’m at work, so I think the water wasn’t as cool as it should have been. Fortunately for me, things seemed to have survived their somewhat rough treatment. The first sip…much lighter than I had anticipated from how strong the scent was while steeping. But delicious. I really enjoyed the light flavors of this, green but not overwhelmingly so.
This tea did remind me of spring with the lightness of the green flavor, just a touch sweet, very fresh.
I’m excited to try the other small sample pack of this gong fu style.
