From Zhao Zhou

Region:
武夷山 - 正岩
Wuyi Mountain – Zhengyan
Fujian province

Description:
Rougui (肉桂, cinnamon) is a type of rocktea (岩茶, yancha) from the Wuyi mountains. It has strong chaqi (茶氣, tea energy), fiery ambiance, and sweet aftertaste. This tea excels in having an exceptional silkiness and an astonishingly flowery, almost dancong-like frangrance which beautifully complements its spicy notes.
This tea was plucked during Spring, and was baked multiple twice: a half year after the harvest time, then once again a year later.

Used a small yixing teapot reserved for dark oolongs. Short infusions first about 3-4 sec, later 5-10.

3-4 sec: Starts with mild, creamy sweetness and flowery smells — pretty lightsome tea.

Later on (around 3-4 infusions, 5-8 sec) it gets stronger, fiery chaqi appears. However, its delicacy remains. Rich both in fragrance and flavour. Still round and creamy; almost like silk it fills the whole mouth. Extreme complexity, real rock-tea.

7/5’

A truly one of a kind tea, I definitely recommend:
