Another morning dip into the Tea Runners cache. I’m hoping to hit a Lincang sheng later, so thought this could be a fun lead-in to the region.
Roast and sweet florals on the warming leaves, malt and light floral from the liquor. Some tannin. Flowers and bubblegum from the wet leaves. I enjoy this tea more as it cools — the flowers get a little stronger. This is no Lishan black — while omnipresent, the floral component is relatively understated.
Flavors: Bubblegum, Floral, Malt, Roasty, Tannin
