This tea is produced in Jinggu, Yunnan by the Zhang family and is sold by Pedro's O5tea. O5tea also sells White Moonlight and Yunnan Golden Curls from the same tea farm, produced by the same family. This sample was gifted by Pedro months ago. Jess from Une Cachette Pour La Coeur asked for a post on this tea, so with the last of the sample, here we go...
On a cool cloudy winter day one quietly prepares this tea. The dry leaves are fairly hairy and smell of soft frosty sweetness with honey-pungent and distant floral notes.
The first infusion comes out very faint, icy, and tasting of light frosting. There is very slight suggestions of malt and orange peel in the background. The mouthfeel is soft and slightly fuzzy especially on the middle tongue. Minutes later a faint cantaloupe melon and apricot taste is left on the breathe.
The second infusion offers up a soft, frosty icing sugar initial taste that pops pure sweetness on the tongue, making the back of the mouth salivate just slightly. The pure icing sugar taste is very soft and long.
The third infusion is much the same as the second but now the mouthfeel is much more expansive- coating the mouth and throat. The qi cools the body slightly and brings an almost unnoticed carefree calm.
The fourth infusion has more soft, malty-oxidized notes barely peeking out, otherwise it is much the same profile. The fifth infusion gives us very light, sweet, and now, slighly oxidized tastes.
The sixth and seventh infusions are light and offer up a slightly sugary taste there is even a light spicy note that appears now as well. The mouthfeel is more viscus here in the later infusions.
