From Nous Tea

This organic green tea from northern Myanmar is as lush as the valley where the leaves were freshly plucked during springtime. Its honey-smooth texture and hint of apricot sweetness are reminiscent of highly prized teas from the neighboring Chinese province of Yunnan, making it a refreshing indulgence for all occasions.

Omg the astringency. I’m getting images in my head of an old person who really needs a drink of water, got that lip and tongue smacking going on. Underneath that, I get some apricot, hot hay and light smoke on the sip, honey mid-mouth and a finish of bitterness and yeast. Because Martin said 180F preparation wasn’t the best and 195F was better, but knowing greens can be very temperamental, I went with 185F. I wonder if a brewing temp of 175F or lower would kill this astringency. Otherwise it has ok flavor but I won’t be seeking out Mandalay Spring again.

I have found last tea bag! Best Before 12/2019. Whoops.

Anyway, this tea was pretty boring. Apricots were gone, not much smooth… quite drying.
No floral notes at all, rather flat tea which reminded me mostly hay.

But maybe it is just too old.

BTW, my B and B subscription arrived today, but not with order… which was placed earlier :/ And sadly it doesn’t include any new teas!

Flavors: Hay

Hmm, maybe the virus has slowed down B&B’s tea creation?

Maybe. But it made me really sad, especially if I had just those in last year subscriptions. There are other teas I did not had yet.
