Outstanding tea for a Rou Gui varietal. It has a very strong presence: a classic Wuyi Yancha, with a strong Yanyun at the beginning and finaly with an frutal (peach – Apple) aftertaste. It ’s quality are like a Shui Yin Gui or a Tie Luo Han, or maybe better.
I brewed 7 gr. of tea in a Yixing teapot of 170 ml. First steep 20 sec, next eight steeps adding 5 sec. each, and fron ninth 15 sec. each steep. In total Thirteen infusions.
Wet leaves has a strong rocky, mineral and chocolat aroma. Leaves has a dark color like a médium-high oxidation. very nice wet leaves.
First steep shows a classic Wuyi Yancha with personality, strong, very strong flavor predominating mineral flavor with chocolat and Woody notes. At the end a subtle fruity aftertaste. In summary, a big strong and delicious tea.
from second to fifth steeps remains the minerality, emerging slowly honey notes and remains fruty aftertaste.
last infusions begins to lost of the minerality increasing the frutal peach notes and same aftertaste. No bitter at all. very pleasant, easy to drink, but allways with strong presence.
I think this is an art piece from a Rou Gui that combines an excellent ground, beautiful leaves and a careful baking process. The perfect combination between nature and human creativity.
