Silk Road Teas is an internet tea company that specializes in Chinese Teas. Their teas are priced within the medium to high range, and they offer a large spectrum of teas, from whites to blacks to pu-erh.

The dry leaves are dark green and whole, with a light honeyed and nutty aroma.

This tea was brewed gongfu style in a gaiwan using 4 grams of leaf.

The first infusion is very pleasant, with a gentle honey like sweetness and pleasant walnut like undertones. A very light huigan appeared, with more walnut flavors and a sweetness similar to that of white tea.

The second infusion was pleasantly nutty and slightly sweet. The mouthfeel was slightly rough, which was unusual for such an early infusion, especially brewed at lower temperatures. Cool, almost lukewarm cups provided more sweetness.

The third and fourth cups were much milder with a continuing sweet, walnut like flavor. There was less roughness in these two cups, instead being replaced by a light bitterness.

The fifth and sixth cups were extremely mild with no roughness or bitterness at all. At this point, only mild sweetness exists, being more prominent when the liquor is cooler.

Overall, this is an above average green tea with a satisfying flavor and good longevity. While some bitterness and roughness were present, they didn't take anything away from the experience.
