7 tasting notes

A medium-high range tea, beautifully twisted, and indeed the “yellowest” I have tasted so far. Dry leaves smell of yellow zucchini, and the infusion strongly reminds of steamed golden apple. To the palate, the first steeping keeps this strong apple note with a flowery finish (acacia), but from the second steeping onwards the tea moves on to an assertive citrus note, almost spicy at the throat level. I personnally disliked this point as I am not big on lemon when served hot, but I still admired the smoothness and roundness of the cup, and the very impressive consistency of this tea: I steeped it 5 times at 2-3min and could have easily kept going for 2-3 more. On the other hand, it makes a beautiful lemonade once cooled down!
My relatively low rating means it is objectively a very interesting tea, but not to my individual taste.
Since Unami sources its teas directly from small estates (and masters when it comes to the highest qualities), it is unlikely to be found anywhere else.
