I used 5g/120ml with 95C water and added 3-5 seconds per each additional brewing.

I could taste orchid and honeysuckle with a hint of raspberry and melon.

The first sip of the first brewing had a light, sweet taste like snap peas or sweet grass.. Melon, raspberries, raspberry, lilac, honeysuckle, orchid, jasmine, and cream being the tastes lingered all over my tongue in the after taste. The liquor was buttery smooth and had a very long finish.

In the aroma of the second cup I could pick up on marzipan and cream mingled in with the floral notes. The flavor of the liquor was now explosive. Strawberries, sweet grass, and jasmine glided over my tongue. In the aftertaste, the jasmine was the strongest by far, lingering on the back of my pallet.

I found that raspberries had the strongest aroma for the third cup. There wasn’t a whole lot of flavor aside from the sweetgrass, but the liquor was even lighter and had become more buttery than the first cup. Jasmine remained the main flavor in the aftertaste, but it mingled with raspberry.

In the fifth cup the liquor began to become astringent but it wasn’t unpleasant. I could taste jasmine and melon at the back of my tongue mingled in with the sweetgrass. In the aftertaste it was a mixture of jasmine and raspberries once again. There was cream as well. I almost didn’t notice it.

In the 6th I primarily smelt sweetgrass with a tiny hint of raspberry. The astringency from the 5th brewing was gone. The mouthfeel was very silky now, still very full but no longer buttery. I mostly tasted sweetgrass and watercress (without the raddish-y part of watercress) in the liquor and aftertaste. At the sides of the back of my tongue and two spots on the center of my pallet I could taste melon and blueberry. I hadn’t tasted blueberry yet so that came as a surprise. Raspberry and cream was still present, but it was very hard to detect.

The tea more or less flatlined from here on out.

My name is Ian. I’m another tea aficionado trying to spread the love and keep track of my thoughts. Mostly tea and vendor reviews, brewing information, and information on tea ware. All reviews will be my honest opinion of the tea regardless of how I obtained the tea.
