Taken to greater heights

Every tea to me is precious, and the more prized, the longer it takes for me to understand and draw out the fullest experience. On the first occasion steeling this tea, the aroma was pure, taste delicate, and somewhat ethereal. I realize that I needed to encourage the leaves with greater abundance, and found on the second occasion a more resilient balance. It does not lack the soaring clarity of a clear winter's sky from a mountaintop. And let me mention the Saigon Jade green; this too I welcomed very softly, and needed to brew stronger, but the the sweetness was even more pronounced with the slight increase in astringency and still the chamomile bloomed int eh cup.
