Received a sample ball of this probably over a year ago but forgot about it. Rediscovered it today and decided to give it a try. I placed the full 6.5g ball into my 90mL jianshui and brewed it up.

I gave it two rinses steeps to let the leaves open up. Once open, the leaves brew a medium yellow and tastes slightly bitter but moderately sweet. Light apricot taste alongside green wood and generic “sheng-y-ness.”

This is a decent tea; above average for balls/mini tuos but not particularly special

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Green Wood

Received from the 2016 Black Friday sampler box. Very cute and very pretty, but as the tea opens up, there are many broken leaves. There is the hinting of an apricot sweetness, but a heavy and somewhat bitter body and aftertaste tends to mask it. It is quite astringent and unfortunately, not quite my cup of tea :)

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter
