Which thank you am I on, Liquid Proust?
Anyway, brewed this one up this morning and shared it with my mom because she loooves peach. The presentation is beautiful, with some orange-pink petals laying on a bed of jade dong ding.
Peach is the distinct smell and flavor of this one, with some minor floral blossom accents in this clean, fresh cup. It reminds me of Georgia in spring. I did a ten second wash of it, sipped it, then decided it would be better western style. I brewed it the first time three minutes, and the peach was mostly in the aftertaste, and definitely lingered. It was a little bit light for me, but I really liked how refreshing it was. My mom loved it the way it was. On steep two, the dong ding (tung ting) really came out to sweeten the cup with it’s own peach like character. Afterwards, I did feel a little dehydrated, but I felt like I just ate a peach rind. The third steep is very floral, and more peach blossom than peach with some sweetness left over, though light.
It’s tea that my mom would purchase for regular drinking, and I might too. It’s a solid, good tea. I would rate it 88 based on my preference for slightly stronger teas, but when I’m in the mood for a light one, this one is perfect. My mom, though, would rate it as a 92. She likes her teas lighter, and this one is great for her. Steep two was the best.
