An excellent choice for a daily drinker Wu Yi. It is packed with flavor and comes in at an unbelievable price of $6 for 50g.
The charcoal roast is present, but arrives as a roasted nut and dark caramel sweetness. Nut flavors arrive with mineral notes, with a chocolate and spice base. Citrus and berry flavors arrive in aftertaste.
Good longevity, giving multiple infusions with solid flavor. Really nice balance of mineral, nut, sweet, and fruit flavors.
Overall, a great experience at a great price. As it stands, this is currently on my list to buy in bulk for my next YS purchase. This is easily one of the best Wu Yi buys out there.
