Good afternoon Steepster!
I am way behind on trying all the tea samples I got from swaps and elsewhere and I got some free samples today from Min River Tea that are green and yellow teas. Thanks to Min River for their generosity :)
This is the first tea I wanted to try. I haven’t had too many yellow teas in my lifetime but the ones I’ve had were very enjoyable. I steeped this one for two minutes in a regular teacup and it’s very tasty. I would definitely agree with the company’s description of:
“It’s rich, thick and vegetal tastes have a surprisingly long-lasting mouth-feel”.
It has a very light yellow, almost brothy appearance and is very refreshing in the mouth. Something about it reminds me slightly of artichoke. There’s a slight palate cleansing bitterness in the finish but nothing offensive in any way. This is a very tasty yellow tea and I’m glad I have more in my sample. I think I’ll go in for a second steep now…
p.s. second steep was yummy!
