Another old subscription tea not in the database. I’m hoping that one day, I can find the info on this tea that I was originally sent – I don’t believe I tossed the inserts, though I don’t know where they are right now, offhand.

The name of this doesn’t have much meaning for me, except that ‘mei’ and ‘gui’ both make me think of honey sweetness/leafhoppers. And maybe there’s something to that, as I do feel like this tea is sweeter, especially in comparison to the oolong I just drank. Similar minerality, but less woody. Certainly prefer this; perhaps because the usual cultivar was used, and it produces a better cup? I’m not sure.

I think huang mei gui translates to yellow rose. It’s supposed to be a fragrant floral Wuyi oolong.

Interesting, thanks derk! Perhaps it was floral for a wuyi oolong, but it didn’t register as floral to me, though definitely was sweet. I really want to find the info on this one!

Apparently I failed miserably at trying to find this on here, given that there is an entry for “Huang Mei Gui” from Verdant, just not with “Wuyi” in the title. I would move my review, but that’s a lot of effort… Thanks for the information! I do see that it’s supposed to be heavy on the florals, so maybe I’ll look harder for them next time!
