Third in the series
I have more of this sample than the other two, but I thought I should use approximately the same amount anyway for consistency sake. The dry leaves smell a little familiar. It’s not too tightly compressed. Looks dry stored, more or less
The tea is a bit more intereating than the last two, I think. When I first drank it I thought it tasted somewhat familiar — I’ve had something like this before. I couldn’t, however, come up with what it was that it tasted like. I just know that I’ve had something similar.
It’s decent enough, somewhat aromatic, hits the throat a little, although a bit rough on the tongue. The leaves smelled ok, if a little “green”. No real faults, but neither is it a real standout. The durability of the tea is good though — it withstood quite a few infusions.
Then I sniffed the pot where I put the wash… smells a little like some Lincang tea I’ve had. I wonder if that’s what this is.
The wet leaves are sort of whole — mostly smaller leaves and buds.
