Summer 2016 (June)
PICKING & PROCESSING
Bud and one or two leaves
Was going to have a silver needle tea, but since I have just had a curry I thought a more robust tea would be better.
Light brown tea. Aroma is tannin, some spice and earth. Taste is earth, tannin, wet wood and some hints of honey.
Less Earth in the aroma, more green leaf. Taste is a little more mellow, less tannin with some stronger sweet notes. More floral notes and in whole it’s a little more rounded. Refreshing.
Morefloral notes in the aroma. Taste is more sweeter and improved in my opinion. More balanced and less tannic.
Overall good Tea that develops through the steepings.
