This was another tea I was foolish enough to smell in the store after the budget was already gone. With my mother. On mother’s day.
Instant obligatory impulse buy.
It’s based in decent looking silver needle and smells like fresh lilac and hay, quite harmonious. But this blend has major identity issues. The silver needle base and lilac are completely seperate. The yin zhen is, oddly, quite savory and almost like honeysuckle and mushroom soup. The lilac is, well, lilac, fresh and floral. I can’t decide if I like this or not. The tea and flowers are good but they just cry out to be seperated. The maternal unit loves it so I’ve got plenty of chances to decide.
