From Camellia Sinensis

Following the aesthetic of a Bai Hao with the cultivar (qingshin), a favourite of the Taiwanese, this “Oriental Beauty” comes to us from plantations located on the flanks of the Jingmai mountain in Yunnan (China).

Its long leaves with hues of ochre and khaki reveal, upon immersion in water, rich fragrances of bark and cooked pears. Its attractive amber liquor boasts sweet and tart flavors evoking citrus zest.

The finish lightly cradles the palate with its nuances of sweet spices (cinnamon) and heady flowers.

Cultivar: Qing Xing
Producer: M. Cai
Altitude: 1400m
Date of harvest: October 15, 2020

Got this as a free sample with one of my orders. It’s got a sweet woody profile with notes of stonefruits, licorice as well as some floral ones. The mouthfeel is plump and the aftertaste quite cooling. In the aroma, I could detect oak wood, fermented vegetables, and flowers.

All in all, a decent and agreeable tea that’s easy to drink.

Today, after a tea tasting disaster (the tea was not good), I decided to make another one and I choose Bai Hao Jingmai from Camellia Sinensis Teahouse. To be honest, it’s one of my favourite tea and my boyfriend love it also. I used gong fu cha technique.

It’s not a tea that changes (smell and taste) with the infusions and the colour of tea was like golden or amber. At smell, it’s spicy (cinnamon) and sweet (honey). And in taste: cooked fruits (mostly cooked pears), honey and the aftertaste is a little bit spicy. Yummy!

My little disappointment is that it’s not persistent: only 4 infusions and after that, it tastes water…
