again from EastTeas
, brewed at 50C. It is grown partly in the shade, apparently to increase its sweetness.
The nose is just lovely: fresh and grassy, but also with that slight fresh fish scent that many find off-putting but which I love in such balanced amounts as they are here. There is also a touch of something more dark toned that I can't put my finger on (maybe a smoked meat?) but which brings a lovely twist to the scent. Very complex.
The palate is smooth, with a creamy consistency, light and not very astringent but still well balanced and elegant. A lovely tea.
My recent purchases from EastTeas has been great. A shop I'll certainly order again from.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
