This is a very clean tea, maybe a bit too much so. There’s no doubt it is gu shu material, but I don’t think the experience justifies the price, ultimately.

The profile is floral, herbaceous and bitter at first with notes of grass, milk, guava, and honey. Towards the end of the session, it gets pretty sweet too. Aftertaste is cooling with a lot of high florals and additional flavours such as peach and olive. The mouthfeel is oily with basically no astringency present – nice, but pretty standard at this price point.

Flavors: Bitter, Floral, Grass, Guava, Herbs, Honey, Milk, Olives, Peach, Smooth, Sweet, Thick

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and I started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth only in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
