Going to be 100% honest about this: The first sip, I knew that this was something different.
Is that different a good or bad thing? Easily said, it’s a wonderful thing.
This tea brews up something I can only explained by story since I’m tea drunk from some sheng
Once upon a time Mr. Guan went over to a new village to pick up some rice from a friend who grows it. While in that village he met a lady known as lady Wuyi and she was a very fine lady who liked her flower garden that was prized, but her father was a very stern man and hard to get through as he knew what was ‘best’ for her. This story goes on and on to explain how love conquered and Mr. Guan and lady Wuyi became Mr & Mrs GuanWuyi, but that isn’t the importance. Their child came into the world and somehow showed promise to not only have traits of their parents, but also grandparents as they were there daily.
What does all this mean? I’m tea drunk.
Anyways, this is one lovely tea that I will buy again when I run out. I normally don’t buy tea again unless I find that it has something great to offer and this does. To me it’s like a weak dong ding with flower notes that a tieguanyin would carry. I’m still wrapping my mind around this being a wuyi because it’s very floral. My first few steeps had a nice texture to the liquid with a buttery finish to the floral taste which was pretty interesting. The best part about this is that I only used 3g for a session and it carried some nice depth to it.
