Drinking tea is more than just an opportunity to rehydrate the body. It is also an opportunity to relax the mind, nourish the body, and challenge one’s intellect. The tea experience can be enjoyed alone or shared with friends. Tea crosses cultural and geographical boundaries. Tea is enigmatic in its universality. I invite you to share my experience when drinking Organic Yellow Flower.
Composition: Organic green tea grown in China’s Anhui province
Dry Visual: Rich dark green leaves resembling thick pine needles with some yellow leaves interspersed throughout. Additionally a buds are present. In comparison to other teas, Organic Yellow Flower reminds me somewhat of Anji Bai Cha.
Dry Aroma: Sweet almost sappy aroma. Yet fresh and clean smelling.
Flavor: Organic Yellow Flower is quite delightful. Almost delicate, this mild green tea reminds me of several white teas I have had the pleasure of drinking. While mild, Organic Yellow Flower is surprisingly fullbodied and consistently floral and clean tasting from start to finish. Missing is the vegetal quality found in many green teas – I’m not complaining. The aroma is somewhat deceiving in that it is quite aromatic in contrast to the mildness of the liquor.
I found the brew to have little astringency (no bitterness, but a subtle dry feel in the mouth). Nevertheless, no sweetener was needed nor would I recommend it. Altering the flavor profile would be a concern to me considering the mild nature of the tea.
Liquor: A pale yellow hue.
Brewing Time: According to the directions, the recommended steeping time is 2 minutes in water that ranges from 170 to 180 degrees F.
Manufacturer: Mighty Leaf Tea
