This was pressed in 2018 by Shouyixuan factory. The wet tea leaves smell a lot like a typical white tea – floral.
The first steeps are floral and citrusy – the citrus reminds me of sweetened lemon shavings used in cakes, or lemon syrup.
The tea starts to mellow out into the later steeps, floral flavor gets replaced by herbal notes, the tea starts to leave a very slight minty aftertaste.
As far as steeping time goes, this tea is pretty forgiving. Also, it lasted way longer than expected, I managed to get 11 steeps out of this. For the price, this is pretty good .
If I had to use one word to describe this tea, it would be “refreshing”.
Flavors: Citrusy, Floral, Herbaceous, Sweet
