For this tea, we used Japanese traditional technology for steamed green tea but adapted it to the specifics of the material from old trees. It took several experiments to figure out the optimum steaming depth in order to remove the astringency of a powerful pu-erh leaf but to preserve the freshness and aroma of light and delicate green tea.

This green turned out less capricious than Japanese varieties, with its original organoleptic properties.

The aroma is sweet, appleish and floral. On the palate is a beautiful, whole and full-bodied mix of fruity-floral tropical notes. In the foreground are apples, plumeria and a bouquet of garden flowers. The finish is sweet and oily. The infusion is light, transparent, with a light green tint.

We recommend brewing this tea by short steepings for 3-5 seconds, using soft water. The old trees require a water with temperature close to 100 C.

- Second Review -
Brief (few seconds) steeps in 90 Celsius water.
Result is similar to the first review, except the fruity note is now more pronounced.
Due to a higher temperature, there is a hint of astringency.
Wet large leaves give off an additional steamed-sugary note to the same green apple aroma.
There is also a faint sweet aroma left in the empty cup, which was not there before when brewed using a lower water temperature.
This tea withstands many infusions with the flavor starts to mellow down by the 5th/6th infusion.

Brief (few seconds) steeps in 75 Celsius water.
Liquor is clear and with pale yellow in tone.
Taste is mild, somewhat fruity sweet with a floral after taste.
Mouthfeel is dry, but no astringency nor bitterness whatsoever.
Wet leaves are large with a light olive-green in hue, giving off a fruity aroma similar to dried green apple.
Very nice looking leaves.
This tea is not to be compared to Japanese-standard steamed green teas, as the taste is completely different.
It is more like a very light infusion of raw puerh for beginners.

[This tea cannot be opened now with 75 C water, the tea is already pretty aged, and old trees require water close to 100 C, note TEASIDE]
