ORIGIN: Lianhua Feng, Wuyishan, Nanping, Fujian, China
MEANING: White daphne (bái rǔi xiāng)
CULTIVAR: Bai Rui Xiang
HARVEST TIME: 28 April 2020
TASTE: Brown sugar, lychee, hazelnut
ROASTING: Thrice (last on 3 November 2020)

Some teas lead with a stunning aroma, others convince with an emergent taste. This yan cha, however, arguably belongs to a third possibility: those teas whose most remarkable quality is their texture. This is not to say it is lacking in flavor, for indeed, it has the rich, tongue-stinging sweetness of brown sugar. Yet that delicious molasses is reflected in its mouthfeel, which seems to curl around the tongue, brushing the palate with a slight astringency, before plunging down the throat. Its yan yun then wafts up with the fruitiness of juicy lychee, while the roast takes the character of fresh hazelnut. Somehow creamy, juicy, syrupy, and almost chewy, its tactile sensations offer as much of a ride as its exquisite aromatics.

This is a sweet, fruity yancha with a woody bitterness and flavours of sour cherry, nectar, paper, and beeswax. I really like its bubbly and astringent mouthfeel.

In terms of aromas, the tea greets you with a spicy and perfumy mix of cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, and ebony.
