Revisiting this old friend for an afternoon cup. I’ve finally realized what the fragrance of this tea reminds me of—Aglaia odorata, or the Chinese perfume plant. It’s one of the scents I remember strongly from my childhood, very delicate and reminiscent of summer.
On closer inspection, the leaves in this batch are of rather inconsistent color and quality for a TGY, and fairly broken up. It’s probably not the best they have produced, since it came in small packages marketed for gifting. If it’s already this good, I imagine a better batch of this tea can easily be a personal 95, if not 100.
