Steeping and Tasting Notes
Perhaps the most enthralling feature of emperor cloud and mist tea is that you can steep it more than once and revel in its range of soft and gently shifting taste notes. It remains flavorful and mild throughout, with hardly any harsh bitterness.
Here’s what it tastes like when steeped at least three times:
The first steep instantly rolls around your taste buds with a rich, vegetal, grassy mouthfeel, with a touch of sweetness and a distant touch of smokiness. It brings surprising and intense freshness right from that first sip.
The second steep is perhaps the best steep. Even though the intensity is reduced, the overall sweetness increases and all its flavors combine harmoniously.
You get a flavor profile closer to a typical green tea from the third steep onwards. The flavor is still complex but a bit more delicate, smooth, and, of course, milder. But it retains the refreshing mouthfeel, like a walk in the woods when there’s a gentle breeze.
