2 Tasting Notes
NOTE – this is not the Feng Huang tea, but the 2016 Taiwan Gui Fei. See the comments below.
This is great, the almost-sweet citrus prickliness on the tongue resolving into a thick smoky chocolate – it’s got more body than the greener leaf-bitten oolongs I’ve tasted. The leaf/water ratio is approximate and I know it seems small, but it works.
The liquor is a light red-brown with a touch of orange, and the leaves steep up a smart, very dark green with some brown.
NB I’m 99% sure this is the right tea. Mine doesn’t say Feng Huang anywhere, but it is What-Cha’s Taiwan Gui Fei Oolong, and it looks exactly like the picture.
Flavors: Chocolate, Citrusy, Smoke
