Backlog: Got 100 grams of this because I thought I’d really like it. Renegade Tea mostly does large servings of 50 grams, and I almost picked the white, but I decided too late as it ran out of stock so I got more of this tea and an older one, First Kiss, which is no longer on the site.
This one’s extremely floral and heavy with Lilac, and juicy and smooth like cranberry juice. In contrast to the sweeter notes, it’s got a little bit of a buckwheat dryness behind the floral component.
I haven’t done a proper session with this one in a while, but it’s a soft, resilient tea lacking astringency. It can get a little bitter like jasmine after an extremely long steep, so grandpa style might not be the way to go unless I figure it out a different way.
That’s all I’ll right for now, but it’s a tea I’m having a hard time getting through. I enjoy it when I have it, but I have to be in the mood for it.
