This is very Silver-Needle-like tea. It’s mellow and sweet with a hint of Darjeeling flavor. I can definitely taste first flush here and catch spring flowers aroma.
The reason I didn’t give this tea 100 rating is that only the first 2 infusions really shined. I did 4 and upped the steeping time accordingly but still couldn’t get the intensity of flavor I appreciate. By all means it’s exquisite tea and really deserves attention but I just don’t feel it’s 100% worth the price, maybe next year harvest will live up to it.
I’m adding this to my rotation nevertheless, it’s too good to pass on.
