We ordered a sample of this from Upton Tea and I used the full 6 grams in the gaiwan, which ends up being difficult to fill to cover them with water. The buds are beautiful. White with pastel green streaks, and they have a scent that makes them seem like they’ll brew up quite grassy.
The liquor is a very clear, light yellow, and it is, interesting, both light and thick. It’s got a spiced, slightly floral flavor, and of course, the overall flavor is quite light in this steep. It’s quite palate-cleansing.
The second steep comes through also very light in color, but a bit stronger in flavor. Definitely still getting that spiced sweetness, with some very light hints of lemon. The SO compares it to a yellow fruit loop, which I can’t disagree with.
The flavor remains pretty consistent for a good few steeps. All in all, a good experience!
