2017 Sheng olympics
(Slightly stream of consciousness review)
Nice yellow/ amber liquor, great aroma on the wet leaves – pineapple, citrus, mango. Becomes more pollenated flowers and orange as its brewed. Taste is moderate frontal bitterness, good citrus character and some tobacco, light smoke and some decent minerallity. Florality is there but the tone is a bit low. Slight nuttiness, medium/med+ body. Good honey sweetness and cheek salivation after some initial drying. Decent cooling and huigan which appears about 30 seconds after drinking and lingers for 2-3 mins, fills the mouth with a pleasant sweet floral aroma. IPA like, firm bitterness with a lot of citrus and florals. Apricot hints. At 7 brews the tea still has some bitterness and a good sweet finish with decent throat characteristics and huigan. Worth owning a cake, not a mind blowing tea (and the qi is light) but solid and interesting enough.
