Such lovely leaves! Fluffy, golden and long. The liquid is very light. Much lighter than I associate with a Yunnan. So light that I probably oversteeped a bit (okay, a lot) expecting a darker color. That said, there was still much less bitterness than I’d expect from a steep this long. Still a light flavor with a bit of sweet in the background. Not much malt in the flavor but a good amount in the steep.

The sample from Sil was generous enough that I will be able to give this another shot and steep for less time to compare. :) Thanks, Sil!

Tea afficionado & founder of the Midwest Tea Festival. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
