Received this as a sample from Wild Tea Qi. Brewed 7 gm of this pretty leaf tea in a 200 ml gaiwan. I didn’t just want to taste the tea I wanted to be the tea.
1ststp for 30 seconds and the color was of a big red robe. I know how corny? The aroma part was difficult. I am making lemon ginger scones topped with Geranium sugar and coupled with my husband’s coffee brewing I escaped into the closet to get my first whiff. My first impression was of artichoke and vegetable garden. The flavor wrapped all around my tongue, not heavy but very smooth. The taste was of a refined wine, deep almost peachy and perfumy. Not a hint of bitter after taste at all.
2ndstp for about 20 seconds and the peachy flavors abound with a perfume that is sweet and gentle. Oh and the scones are out of the oven.
3rd-6thstp adding 5 seconds and the tea is hanging in, still giving its beauty. Paired with the scones, topped with some homemade current jelly,who could ask for a better morning.
This will be a great evening tea to serve friends and family.
