I now think steepster is eating reviews too. Not like me to not review a tea I have almost finished a month after it has arrived.. Im sure reviewed this one before. Oh well.
recently ive been hitting it with lower temperatures, like 70c and getting a really pleasant pear & apple aroma & taste. still white, and slightly citrusy, people say hay but i get something else, but defo like a nice white wine. iirc this one can get slighty bitter notes if oversteeped, will have to retry this and report. I think it can take multiple steeps well, losing the citrus edge but still nice.
Really enjoyed it today (and other days) although to me its not the strongest ying zhen I have had before for pure floral, or subtle divine flavour which I have experienced before.
it has smaller tighter more yellow leaf, isnt green & white fluff, but totally enjoyable if you like a touch of zest in there. (something to do with it being the autumn harvest? i dont know)
really nice to drink. more relaxing, nice qi for me.
