|"It's lightly grassy and creamy with floral undertones."|
The cup smells creamy, floral, and lightly mineral. The tea has a brilliant mineral base that lingers on in the back of the throat after swallowing. The buttery flavour coats the mouth giving the tea a great texture. It's lightly grassy and creamy with floral undertones.
The tea becomes creamier and more floral up through the third steep, my personal favourite infusion of this leaf. As the steeps progress after that, the creaminess dissipates, but this still has depth and deliciousness. It's a great tea, having everything I want and expect from a winter oolong.
