Autumn 2018 harvest. Brewed at boiling — let’s see what this tea is capable of.
It’s so thick — like an unset jelly. Try it grandpa style for the best effect.
It’s sweet, most awesomely tangy, mineral and pleasantly metallic, hint of custard.
Intensely yet softly aromatic with an expansive, lingering perfume. The aroma and tea fill my mouth.
The leaves expand like a dry sponge wetted, escape my teapot when brewed gongfu and instantly settle to the bottom of my grandpa brewing jar.
Floral — magnolia to the max, lilac, sweet pea, gardenia
Vegetal — bok choi, green cabbage, zucchini, sugar snap peas, English peas, green bell pepper
Spicy — musk, white pepper, black pepper
Fruity — golden apple, lemon, golden melon, ripe peach and apricot
Umami — white mushroom broth
Nature — pine forest when clouds break after a spring rain, moss
All in balance.
Wonderful calm and alert cha qi that is non-interfering.
This tea has completely changed my unfavorable perception of tieguanyin oolong. Wholeheartedly recommended.
Thanks, Togo <3
