Organic, spring pick shanlinxi. Good flavor profile this year. Nice looking as well..
I liked the Shanlinxi that MST carried in 2018, and have been hoping for another tea from that region since. It was well worth the wait. This 2020 one is sweet, only slightly vegetal (a plus in my book), smooth and expansive. The wet leaf has a delicious intense fragrance of - peach candy? The later steeps bring something like almond flower, and develop a bit more astringency. Overall, a tea that makes me think of spring and lightheartedness.
