This is my last cup of this sample. So sad! Fortunately, it was a great cup to end on. In fact, I’m giving the rating a bump upwards just a tad because it is just so good.

It’s got some faint notes of a Chinese green – a little grassy, a little mineral/salty, a little sweet – and and some stronger notes of a good Silver Needle (I’m thinking specifically of Chicago Tea Garden’s SN which I had recently) with honey and nectar and bit of vegetal depth.

My little cup went very quickly and pretty much guaranteed that, when I next order from Teas Etc, I will be getting some of this tea.

So glad you liked it! I really ought to revisit this one sometime, I think.

I really do like it a lot! All the things I like in a Chinese green and a white, none of the stuff I don’t. So tasty!

Sipdown no. 122 of 2018 (no. 478 total). I wonder if I can make it to 500 sipdowns by the end of the year? Probably not. I do think I’ll have something on the order of 10 more, though, if I hit the samples.

I sipped this one down Wednesday. It had become my take it to work tea.

After looking back at my original note on this, I don’t have much more to say about it other than to agree with myself that it did make a nice work tea.
