This tea has a very light flavor to me. The first time I tried it, I was able to get a light muscatel flavor, but that’s about it. This time, I steeped in in a 12 oz. mug with two heaping teaspoons of tea. I can taste the muscatel flavor a bit more, and a sort of leafy freshness. It’s still light, but pleasant. I wonder how it would taste if I steeped it in a gaiwan instead.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was little, but I only started drinking loose leaf about two years ago. I haven’t tried nearly as many teas as I would like. Starting 2011, I’m going to try to write out tasting notes rather than just recording that I drank something, but I’m not that familiar with a lot of the jargon yet. Also, I’m easily pleased, so I probably tend to rate high. I hope my tasting notes will be helpful to others, but, if nothing else, it’ll help me remember what I thought of various teas, which will be helpful when I’m ordering more.
