I've finally gotten around to writing some more about tea. I know you guys love it so much, so I'm here to deliver the news! I know you aren't actually as excited as I am about these things :(
I've got the Jing Gu Silver Needles steeping in my clear gaiwan right now. I've actually drunken this quite a few times already, but once again, exams were in the way so I refrained for fear of it leading to further procrastination. I'll try to do a very quick description of the tea, and improve my concision while remaining eloquent...
The tea comes out of the gaiwan with a very light peach colour that sums up its pretty and delicate nature, leaving behind some fuzzy rolled-up leaves.
|Yeah it looks weird, but that's the easiest way to show the colour|
The tea has a nice light and tangy lemon note, which is complemented by the pleasant scent of papaya and lemons from breathing out. It is a very simple offering, but that's all it needs to be great.
Everything about this tea is fragile: The low (water) heat-tolerance, the fragrances and the colour! And yet, it is a beautiful combination that entertains the drinker in a gentle and refined manner. Perfect for the coming summer!
