There is no truer tea tasting note for this tea than the one #tanluwils posted, and it was on his recommendation that I purchased this. Iron Arhat is another of the WuYi 4 that’s hard to find in a good representative state, it’s either too smokey, not roasted enough, a blend of other material, so on. This tea has such clarity and as my friend states in his notes, “I recommend taking breaks in between steeps to extract the most flavor.” I brewed gongfu with a small gaiwan and yes I drank the rinse, I know eeew but I can’t help myself sometimes. The tea holds tight the first 3 then relaxes and at 6 really needs to be told what to do. Flash, 10sec, 15, 20, 30, 45, 60, 90, 150, using 7g in 110ml over 4 different sessions. I did go further in 2 of those sessions and added minutes to the steeps and a bit of demerara, chilled, for ice tea tasting but was not enough tea to make a splash. Overall goodness, enjoyed immensely.

With these teas, tossing the rise feels wasteful! I wish I had the budget and room for more of this stuff. It screams Zhengyan and was roasted to perfection. After steep 6, this can’t be overbrewed. I accidentally steeped for 10 mins and ended up with a very tasty cup.

Rich, thick, and complex. Pay attention to this tea’s depth, mouthfeel, structure, and aftertaste rather than just flavors. It brews a clear orange liquor that is thick and velvety. The aroma is heavy — mineral-like, floral, and lightly roasted.

I do a flash rinse with this one, as initial steeps are immediately thick and complex. The tea coats my entire mouth but lingers in the cheeks, back of the mouth, and throat. Notes are savory-sweet zhengyan minerals, florals, red velvet cake(?), cannabis, roasted barley, and a hint of fruit.

Steep 3 onwards reveals the tea’s qi, depth, and structure. Sensations intensify from the back of the tongue into the throat and in the cheeks. The qi is relaxing and warms my core. I can feel the tea’s presence for long time after drinking. Prominent notes here are more floral, zhengyan minerals, cannabis, and hints of roasted barley.

After steep 7, the tea needs to be pushed, and that’s fine. Later steeps are moderately thick and have depth, structure, and a very pleasing zhengyan mineral and floral aftertaste. I recommend taking breaks in between steeps to extract the most flavor. Nice lingering tea buzz!
