Hot summer is here. Should I say finally? Rain stopped and temperatures scaled up from 10˚C to 34 from one day to another.
This caused me two days long intensive headache. And I wasn’t the only one on whom it had this effect.
It seems like my organism has already accustomed to this rapid change. I hope so.
This tea was picked on 25 April on Tai Lao Shan mountain,
Dry leaf smells very fresh and vivid, floral and with some tones resembling Japanese green teas.
After pouring the water on leaves, this smell even intensifies and fills the whole room with spring. Just as last year, just as the year before the last one, it never takes me down and is always this wonderful.
Overall, the scent is stupefying, just as I would expect from fresh tea of this type. It is green – the definition of green and how would it possibly smell.
First infusion is floral, soft and juicy as expected. Immediately after tasting, tones of honey and fresh, sweet plums touch the tongue. There is no bitterness at all.
This fruitiness continues in second infusion, being accompanied by mild, noble spicy tones, which pleasantly invigorate the whole impression this tea gives.
Tea is enjoyed in five infusions. It would be able to produce more of them, but I somehow felt that five would be just right today. Cool character of this tea, intensified by brewing in glass was able to ease me of the summer heat at least for a while.
This Lu Xue Ya is an inexpensive tea, quality of which overpasses the price. It is a great way to refresh yourself in summer and calmly relax, listening either to music, or silence.
Both go well with this tea.
