I’m really impressed with the leaf quality on this tea. Wonderful, whole fuzzy buds twist nicely and yield a succulent brew. Very juicy and sweet up front, with grassier dry notes developing in a few later steeps. Strawberry, yellow plums, and pumpkin butter are all good descriptors. This tea carries some endurance and should be steeped briefly many times. A tea that’s just a bit nicer than a solid daily drinking green.

Bio

Exploring the world of fine Chinese and Japanese teas, my favorites include: sheng pu’er, moderately roasted oolongs, gyokuro, shincha, and high quality, artisanal whites and greens. I don’t subscribe to any particular style of brewing, but incorporate elements from traditional techniques to brew the best tea possible. I also seek to share the joy that tea brings me with others, but am really rather introverted.
