Very nice.

The dried leaves smelled of fresh hay. The liquor was light orangish amber with a very light floral aroma. It’s lightly oxidized, tastes like a very creamy Alishan as Daylon said and at times it reminded me of a smooth and creamy TGY without the tartness.

It is a busy day, lots of work and mid-way I fried it (cry) and put boiling water instead and well, it made it bitter >.<. Up until that point, it was lovely. Light florals notes, vegetal, smooth and creamy. Next time, I’ll be more careful.^^

I have my personal computer back! Yay!

So short note. I love this tea. It resembles a creamy Alishan with some nuances of the Jun Chiyabari terroir, which surprised me. It’s predominantly creamy, but green enough to resemble green tea ice cream. I got hints of violet in the florals, and some macademia in its character. It’s my personal favorite of the limited edition teas.
