The dry leaves are not too big and have a natural green colors. The brew has great clarity and transparency with a very fresh yellow color. The open leaves are huge as well, but they retain their full flexibility and tenderness. Lots of insect bites on buds and leaves are clear signs that this plantation doesn't use pesticides.
The dry leaves smell like fresh lavender and fresh flowers! We find the same fine scents in the brew. The feeling is natural, elegant and intense.
The taste of this tea is simply perfect! It's sweet, pure, full of energy, buttery, intense, concentrated, long, refined, cooling, relaxing...
