This tea is from 2015, and I have to say it is pretty solid. I am not really a fan of Phoenix Wu Longs. I find no great flaws in them, but they dont get me excited. I find them a little to perfumey and thin. I bought Tea Drunk’s Zhi Lan Xiang cause I knew the cultivar was a little stronger than other Feng Huangs.
This medium roasted tea is quite nice. With a medium body, I describe this tea as having a squash/pumpkin taste. The fact it is a feng huang does add a little bitterness and texture, but this compliments nicely with the simple full flavor.
I would probably rate this tea higher, but since I am not a feng huang fan my bias comes into play.
Flavors: Pumpkin, Roasted
