Taster’s Review:

Yellow tea is my favorite tea, so I am always excited when the opportunity presents itself to try one that I’ve not yet tasted.  This is a fantastic yellow with its  delicate, creamy taste and a hint of nutty flavor in the background.

It has a silky mouthfeel to it, but I notice that it is not as prominent a mouthfeel as I’ve come to expect from a yellow tea, and there is a hint of tangy astringency that was also quite unexpected.  Neither of these things are bad or render this beautiful yellow tea “off” in any way, it just makes it a little different than the rest.

The tea is sweet with brown sugar-ish kind of notes – it is very pleasant and ties in well with the aforementioned nutty tones of this tea.  There is a vegetative note that arrives about mid-sip, and it is reminiscent of steamed bitter greens with a touch of butter.

It’s quite a delicious tea, sweet yet savory, and an absolute pleasure to sip.
