Another sample from a tea friend trade. Working through the samples!
Green beany smelling, a fresher, higher quality leaf than I am used to smelling in a flavored milk oolong. The Jin Xuan green flavor is strong in the brew, making it bright and green tasting. Sometimes it’s oddly dark green and a little umami.
There’s a little of the caramel milk flavor, but it’s light. It manages to linger through the many steeps I took this through. Though it starts out with no apricot in the beginning, it grows much stronger later.
Thanks for a lovely sample, tea friend!
