I’m drinking the March tea club on time. This tea is super fresh (picked late Feb 2019).
Dry leaf has lots of stems and leaves that remind me of white tea. Smells of linen and looks unfinished. According to the info, this tea is in its natural state after processing, with stems and large leaves. It’s missing the final roast. Considered unfinished product and would not normally be available.
Drinking this western today. My variable temperature kettle broke, I have have one that just boils right now.
3 steeps, 1-2 min, approx 200F
Aroma – waft of wood, floral. Taste: floral, orchid, tingly, creamier as it cools, initially it had no depth, super-floral aftertaste
I enjoyed this educational tea.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Green, Orchid, Wood
