|"I get notes of citrus rind, aloe, hay, pineapple, arugula, melon, pine, and cactus flowers."|
My 190°, 3 minute second steep is on par with the first. The finish is a touch dry, but it feels like it should be because of the pineapple and citrus notes. I get a solid third infusion, steeping the tea for 10 minutes, but I won't try for a fourth.
This tea is so complex, its various flavour notes are elusive. I found myself sipping and puzzling sip after sip, until the cup was empty, trying to describe what I tasted accurately, and I suspect others may still experience it differently. It's similar to other white teas I've had, yet it is unique and not exactly like any other tea I've had. I'm really got the chance I got to experience this leaf.
