Daydream is one of my favourite Crimson Lotus teas I’ve tried. Its highlight is the dreamy stoning cha qi coupled with a long evolving aftertaste. It seems to me, however, that it might be a tea to drink now rather than to age; the processing of most of the material seems very “green”.

It has a grassy aroma almost like a sencha with notes of apricot pits, wet wood, cream, cinnamon, cucumber, seaweed and grain appearing after the rinse.

The taste starts out savoury, floral, bitter, and vegetal with flavours such as thistles, freshly cut grass, watermelon skin (the light green part), hay, broccoli, and lavender. It has a butter-like finish and a drying citrusy afertaste reminiscent of lime and citrus zest. Later on I notice further flavours of agar wood, pine, green wood and an edamame-like sweetness. There are also some jasmine and lavender notes in the aftertaste now.

The liquor has a medium body and a lubricating, creamy mouthfeel. It is very soft and somewhat effervescent. As I mentioned already, I really like the energy of this tea. It provides a dizzying and elevating sensation that’s really a full body experience.

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Broccoli, Butter, Cinnamon, Citrus Zest, Cream, Creamy, Cucumber, Floral, Freshly Cut Grass, Grain, Grass, Green Wood, Hay, Jasmine, Lavender, Lime, Melon, Pine, Seaweed, Soybean, Sweet, Warm Grass, Vegetal, Wet Wood, Wood

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
