7 Tasting Notes
Feels like being wrapped in a warm quilt, or gardening in the morning , a hint of dendelion, reminds me of a combination of Bi Luo Chun’s green snaily-ness and Mao Jian’s foresty dustyness. Flavor of grape stem lingers on the tongue after more rounded mouthfeel has gone.
Flavors: Butter, Dandelion, Dust, Grapes
very lush, dense (as in compacted in a small space) deep flavor that hits more of the back of the throat and tongue, – smooth and buttery mouthfeel. There’s a flavor of fruit but while the fruityness and juicyness is obvious, the actual fruit is had to discern, it’s a delicate, gentle whisper of citrus and the feel of a non sweet banana
Flavors: Forest Floor, Fruity, Green
Very front facing floral notes with a diffuse pastel blue sort of mouthfeel that lingers fairly briefly. The honey comes through with its own natural sweetness, that rounds out the otherwise a little bit flat (though complicated? a strange juxtaposition) flavor of the orchid flowers. A little bit more vegetal than I remember an earlier pick being but not in a bad way, more towards a wet moss. I think the fuzziness of the mouthfeel paired with the rounded fruityness of the honey and tea make for something almost reminiscent of peach.
