I got a box from a teafriend last night, hooty hooo. Thanks Togo!

Really nice looking leaf. Unfortunately, for me this wasn’t a prelude of things to come.

I prepared this western with 3.5g, 8oz water, 175F and 2 steeps of 1m15 and 2m.

In the wet leaf after the first steep, I could smell mostly umami broth with some anise and sugar cookie or maybe it’s just an anise cookie :P The aroma of the liquor was identical which was pleasing. In the mouth, it was medium-bodied but terribly astringent and lacked much flavor. Some zucchini and nuttiness with a very faint aftertaste of buttery nuts, like macadamia. There was also a persistent tartness emanating from the throat. The second steep was nearly the same, albeit with a little more flavor including anise and some vague fruitiness. I’m not sure if it was more astringent or if the first steep totally dried my mouth out. If it had just a hint of sweetness, I’d be inclined to rate it higher. Might make a good cold brew or do well grandpa but I won’t be seeking out more in order to try.

This tea needed a good amount of leaf to water ratio to coax out the fruitiness but was a decent cup. Fruity & nutty.

This tea mostly has fairly standard Chinese green tea characteristics, but with better mouthfeel.

The smell is similar to longjing – nutty and a little floral, but more fruity. The taste is brothy, vegetal and fruity. In terms of flavours I can pick up some grapes and courgette. Overall, it is fairly light and crisp tasting, medium-bodied with nice thick and oily mouthfeel that gets a bit astringent in the finish. In the aftertaste, there are some sour flavours emerging as well. The feeling in the throat is warming for a while after drinking the tea.
