Decided to compare the Spring Tieguanyin to the Autumn because I had a sample of each from Terri Harplady!! Thanks!!!!!!
Wow!! I am definitely getting the Lilac floral taste and aroma in this one. I must say that I enjoyed the Spring one a bit better (as I do Spring season over Fall so that’s appropriate lol).
I was checking the Verdant website for the other tasting notes and I find that there is always a dominant flavor and then the other ones are very subtle. They mention honey which it does have a sweetness. Cashew, rice pudding, and anise. There is a muted, not quite pronounced creaminess so I can see the rice pudding and cashew now. There is a slight astringency in the finish so I am getting the anise.
Spring was definitely better than Fall for me but this was still delicious. I have a traditional Tieguanyin to try next in my Valentine’s Day comparisons! :)
