Sil was kind enough to include a sample of this in our tea festival swap. Yum, it’s got that bready-chocolatey Laoshan black-like thing going on, but I may have steeped it too briefly to experience the full flavour components.

Thanks for this, Sil. Enjoyable on this lovely slow morning.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Can it be resteeped? sounds yummy

Yes, the second steep was really good, but I was in motion, so my attention wasn’t all there. Tried a third steep, but nope not happening. Thankfully, I have enough for another cup or so. More later.

pulled this one out as well. I should try it as a cold brew because this isn’t a lemongrass overpowering things blend. Instead you can actually get the basil notes to come through. Makes for a unique blend versus other stupid lemong grass blends where that’s virtually all you’re tasting.

I wish there was more basil to this one. What sounded like an interesting blend is largely lemongrass. It’s not BAD, just not what i was hoping for. Admittedly though, as it cools there’s a little more to it, so i’ll have to experiment some more :)

This tea ferments to make a distinctively floral kombucha. Tempered nicely by the subtle tang of the ferment, the brew is supremely drinkable.

I really like floral black teas, so I’m not surprised I really like this. The lavender and blue cornflower dominate for me, in a very good way.

The colour of the steeped tea is such a beautiful pale gold: the first sign that this is no ordinary green tea.

No. 93, Feng Ling Ming Ye makes sense of how highly prized good tea has been in Asian history. This tea is glorious: smooth, so smooth. The most delicate vegetal butter. I detect an ever so slight bit of coconut here. Perhaps that is the sesame hint mentioned though my taste buds are taking it coconut way.

Thank you, Sil, for sharing this with me. This tea is making this day infinitely better.

At this moment, it is hailing. Yes. I heard a rush outside, as if it began to ran, but nope, it is hail. Like a snowstorm, but the hail bits are bouncing off every surface. In May.

No global warming here.

Sil

Glad you enjoyed it.

This tea tricked me because I thought it was an oolong (judging by appearance alone). Lol, I should have read the description.

For a green tea, it is a good one. It tastes very crisp— like fresh cut grass almost. It is vegetal and the slightest bit sweet.

SMOKEY. This tea reminds me of seaweed, in a good way. It’s savory, not sweet. It reminds me of the dried seaweed used to wrap sushi. I can’t tell you the individual notes, but this tea can sing.

Flavors: Seaweed
