This tea was part of a Tieguanyin sample pack I bought from Hello Teatime for 11/11. I think it’s the first green tgy I’ve actually enjoyed. I wasn’t too excited after smelling the leaf, which had the typical green tgy floral aroma, but it turned out to have more to offer than just that generic flavor. Maybe it helped that I used boiled water. Boil all the oolongs!
Lots of floral going on, but enough fruity flavors joining up in the finish to keep it interesting. I didn’t get the weird sourness which sometimes puts me off of tieguanyin either. The texture was pleasantly smooth. Simple and enjoyable.
