Enjoying this one this morning. I’ve had this tea before from Spring 2015. I even have some of the Spring 2015 still in my cupboard. I really liked it then but the dry leaf smells different from the two. Autumn has more of a fruity scent and the Spring has more of a straw scent to it. I will have to brew both up together and see if there’s a big difference. It might also have to do with the Spring one starting to age.
I brewed this at 80C in my tea mug. It’s strange a few reviews say this tea is astringent. I found very little astringency in it. Maybe it had to do with the brewing. It’s a sweet nutty tea with a bit of fruitiness. There’s a bit of green pea in there too. It reminds me a bit of some bi luo chun teas. Think I will try this one at 70 to see if I get more fruity flavour from it.
