Got this one as a sample.

Going with 5g, 90ml, at around 200F

The aroma post-wash smells like butter and corn and … roasted corn.

Steep times were as follows: 5s, 8s, 12s, 30s

First steep. A bit faint, but tastes like corn and butter.

Second steep. A bit more of a ‘roasted’ flavor than before. Still smooth and keeps a similar taste profile as the first steep.

Third steep. Taste is constant but it’s faint overall. A bit of a vegetal flavor now.

Fourth steep. Tastes like the previous.

I’m not a fan of the taste so I will not proceed past this. Overall the tea is on the lighter side of things and can be considered to be ‘smooth’. I wouldn’t consider it creamy though. Easy enough to brew gongfu style.

Flavors: Butter, Corn Husk, Roasted, Vegetal

My grading criteria for tea is as follows:

90-100: Phenomenal tea right here. Drinking this is just a wonderful treat.

85-89: Extremely good tea but it’s just missing that one thing to make it exceptional.

80-84: Very good tea. May not be the best, but it certainly is excellent for the times that you crave them.

70-79: Good tea. The types of teas that have that one characteristic to them that makes it worthwhile despite lacking in all the other areas

60-69: Average tea. Doesn’t excel at anything but isn’t’ horrible in anything either.

40-59: Below average tea. I can see how someone else would like this tea but I definitely don’t like it. Could be an issue with my brewing or just my taste in general. If it’s a brewing issue, rating will be adjusted accordingly.

0-39: How is this tea. Better beverages could be made by grabbing a clump of dead grass from my front lawn.
