Eternal Spring

Tea covered with golden shiny fluff

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Leaves are really beautiful. Dry leaves are covered with golden shiny fluff. It is not much visible on the pictures. Tips are really great and solid. Visually it is a very nice tea. I am using water.100°C. The infusion is brownish-red. Wet leaves smell intensely after overripe berries. The taste is nicely balanced. There is nothing standing out of smooth delicate taste. There is a hint of honey, but the sweetness is minimal and it is covered with a delicate astringency and dry feeling on the tongue.

Personally, I prefer the full bodied taste. I am using 4 grams per 100ml and steep for about 20 to 30s. The taste is still smooth and delicate even for longer steeping. There is just more astringency and dryness on the tongue in the aftertaste. I like it this way :-) It's a nice tea. For those who love classic red tea, I definitely recommend to taste it.

Quotes - Pu-erh


„Once dry, maocha can be sent directly to the factory to be pressed into raw pu'er, or to undergo further processing to make ripened pu'er. Sometimes Mao Cha is sold directly as loose-leaf "raw" Sheng Cha or it can be matured for 2–3 years in loose leaf form due to the faster rate of natural fermentation in an uncompressed state. This product is then pressed into numerous shapes and sold as "raw" Sheng Cha as a more matured final product.“

Quotes


„Gyokuro (玉露, Jade Dew) - Gyokuro is a fine and expensive type that differs from Sencha (煎茶) in that it is grown under the shade rather than the full sun for approximately 20 days. The name "Gyokuro" translates as "jade dew" and refers to the pale green color of the infusion. The shading causes the amino acids (Theanine) and caffeine in the tea leaves to increase, while catechins (the source of bitterness in tea, along with caffeine) decreases, giving rise to a sweet taste. The tea also has a distinct aroma.“
