Overall not a bad tea. For the price? Horrible. I too do not understand why this has been rated so highly by others. I brewed it by using 5g/120ml, 95C water, rinsed twice, first steeping was five seconds, +3-5 for each additional brewing.

I did a total of eight and these leaves never opened up all the way. How willing/able a leaf is to unroll is a extremely important part to consider in leaf quality.

It smelt of nutmeg, roasted chestnuts, and a hint of oak. Something sweet as well, perhaps melon and blueberries. The liquor has an incredibly smooth and soft mouthfeel. The first cup was almost flavorless with a tiny hint of chocolate and jasmine. The aftertaste reminded me of melon, honey, blueberries, and raspberries. I had to really sit to notice most of these, they were very subtle. The same applies to the rest of the brewings.

The second cup tasted like pine, chocolate, and evergreen mingled with orchids.

The third was very chocolatey and the liquor became a little astringent. The aftertaste was still somewhat floral and fruity.

The following brewings tasted mostly like pine mingled with vanilla and jasmine or orchid.

A very average Wuyi. Nothing to celebrate about and most certainly not worth just over $1/g.

Flavors: Blueberry, Chocolate, Honey, Jasmine, Melon, Orchid, Pine, Raspberry

My name is Ian. I’m another tea aficionado trying to spread the love and keep track of my thoughts. Mostly tea and vendor reviews, brewing information, and information on tea ware. All reviews will be my honest opinion of the tea regardless of how I obtained the tea.
