Good floral character, light liquor, light astringency and mouth feel. The floral tapers off towards stone fruit at the end. Second steep looses much of the floral, but becomes sweeter, more balanced and is very easy drinking.
Would be very good cold brewed. This is the lightest of the four with the second best floral notes.
The leaves are greener this year than last. Very light floral notes, stone fruit and minerals, with tea aromatics underlying these on the first steep. The Second steep mellows the astringency whilst pulling the tea notes to the front. Again, it is a more traditional style despite the green leaf in the make.
First steep is flowery at the front (though a different set of floral notes to the Seeyok). Also a stronger mouthfeel, moderate astringency, with mineral and moss notes bringing up the rear. On the second steep the floral steeps back, the mineral and stone fruit steps forward and the mouth feel is like you have been eating love hearts.
This is my favourite so far this year. Strong delightful floral notes, slightly stronger astringency but very well balanced and a good mouth feel. This one keeps the floral notes on the second steep, though brings in some minerality and herby notes at the back end, it remains very well balanced.
Would be very interesting cold brewed.
