From Yunnan Sourcing

Tian Jian tea from Anhua County of Hunan packed in aromatic bamboo leaves and baked (low temperature) dry in the leaves. This process imparts a unique taste and aroma providing the Tian Jian aficionado with yet another reason to enjoy this wonderful tea.

The taste is thick and sweet, with smoke, carmelized sugar and roast oolong. An inexpensive tea well worth the price.

I prepared this tea gong-fu today, but wasn’t doing tasting note while drinking.

4g/85 ml gaiwan, not preheated, rather long rinse, long steeps.

At first the bamboo were quite noticeable, adding quite a pleasant experience, not smoky! Bit woody, deciduous-tree forest. Yummy.

Then it goes through wet forest floor, thick, roasted, bit earthy notes. Honestly, I don’t remember too much, because I was doing lots of other things – mostly studying mathematics for Friday exam. I am not even close to I want to be, I am completely stuck in first two chapters and can’t go past them somehow. I feel bit “that stuff isn’t that necessary” but actually it is as well, of course!

There were some notes of stonefruits, but not in fruity way. Hopefully I will have chance to try this tea without any disturbance, because this tea is worth it.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Bamboo, Forest Floor, Roasted, Stonefruits, Thick, Wood

Wishing you luck for your exam tomorrow Martin!
