I don't know a thing about this sample of tea I received from Yunnan Sourcing....yet.
I am drinking my first four infusions right now, and will research later! Just look at those curls! And that color, wow!
What a great tea. I don't know what to do with it of course, so first I rinsed it, but sipped the tea rinse and liked it! Second infusion was a flash brew about 178 degrees and absolutely loved it. I just hit it with almost boiling water for the third infusion and its a little more astringent, if that is even the right word, but still good. I assume someone with knowledge will soon tell me to use higher temps for black but I am finding with this tea, and the Oriental Beauty I like the temps to stay fairly low.
Please feel free to advise me.
In the meantime, enjoy the photos.
'Pure Bud', huh?
Sounds about right to me.
Go get some at Yunnan Sourcing, and thanks to Scott for sending it to me.
