7 Tasting Notes
Lovely honey and fresh alfalfa hay taste. Rich, full mouthfeel. Soft floral notes in the aftertaste. A bit like drinking the sunshine in a little meadow. Holds up pretty well to higher temp brewing but can get a little dry. Cold brews like a dream!
Very light tea, both in texture and flavor. It’s pretty smooth and delicate, with more fruit and sweetness in the aftertaste than the actual sip. It’s a very friendly drinker, but not terribly complex or nuanced? I think I could have pushed the temps and steeping times harder though.
This tea is sort of like what I would imagine eating a buttercup to be like. The body is smooth, with a longish finish. Not a lick of dryness or bitterness/astringency. The texture is almost silky, which is a new experience for me. Some really smooth, soft floral notes (white flowers? I would say peony BUT.) and a very light hay/dry grass flavor. It’s not winning any awards for hitting you over the head with a flavor mallet, but it’s sweet and delicate and very pleasant.
I am a puer newbie, so for a newbie, this is a pretty neat puer. It tastes like apricots. It is an apricot hammer. Apricots and a little sugary sweetness. The finish is super long and sweet, and the body of the tea is quite thick compared to what I usually drink. I imagine it might be a little on the plain/boring side for a puer connoisseur as the taste doesn’t change much throughout the infusions. I did manage to stick with this tea for 10 infusions, and it seems to be pretty forgiving; it didn’t get bitter or dry on me until the end.
Flavors: Fruity, Honey
This tea brews up a very pretty light champagne gold, and smells like fresh alfalfa with a touch of something savory that I can’t place. The taste was mostly light hay, alfalfa, and a soft vegetalness with a tiny bit of honey. I didn’t get much in the way of floral or fruit notes. The finish is a little short and on the dry side. I spaced out and forgot to use a filter for the first few steeps but didn’t end up eating a bunch of leaf which was nice. The price point on this tea is really nice, which would make it a nice daily drinker for someone that likes a more savory white. I said “nice” too many times. This tea is nice.
