From Adagio Teas

Sweet young buds, not quite open, make up the leaves of this fine tea. The pale yellow liquor releases a softly vegetable yet floral aroma. Delicate and light, this tea refreshes with the fruity-floral character of a dewy spring morning.

Thanks again for the lovely package, Beorhthraefn! The leaves here kind of look like the yellow tea I had the other day, a dusty tan color, though the leaves here have hints of pink? Never seen that before. The leaf shape looks in between sencha or silver needle. I was reading tasting notes that said this one didn’t have much flavor, so I used two teaspoons. The flavor is pretty mild – tastes like the lightest white tea and there isn’t really any comparisons to make to actual flavor notes. Trying to get more out of the leaves the second time, the temp was too hot and the time was too long, because I just ended up with a cup of bitter. Oh well. I always love the black teas from Adagio anyway!

Very subtle but tasty green tea that reminds me a bit more of white tea in flavor. I personally like my tea flavors a hair stronger, or this would be rated higher!

This tea has a very interesting flavor, hard to describe. I’m not sure yet whether I like it or not.

I mixed this with the lemon grass. I like this green tea, but I don’t reach for it often enough to buy it again. Great for blends though.

This tea has a fairly sweet / floral flavor. It is nice when I’m not in the mood for a really “green” flavor. I like it, but it isn’t an everyday tea for me.
