I am really behind on my TOMC sampling!!
This one is from October, & I’m just now finally getting around to trying it. It’s lovely! Nuggets with tails, in shades of medium to dark Jade green, the dry aroma is sweet & fruity, the wet aroma is a gentle banana rice pudding kind of smell.
5G + 4oz Gaiwan (rinse) X 3/6/9/12/15 etc…
This is a very delicate cup of gentle fruitiness. In the earliest cups I tasted homemade dehydrated bananas. Not the crunchy ones like you get from the store, but the chewy caramel textured ones you get when you dry them yourself, much sweeter, & a real pleasure to eat. The color is a very pretty spring yellow. Over the next several steepings (12 in all) the tea took on a sunny quality, a lightly fruity (peach?) & sugarcane taste, with a creamy vanilla texture. Near the end it reminded me of banana rice pudding.
