A Hong Shui with very light oxidation and a superb roast that never takes over the experience. It is very tasty and might just be the best Hong Shui I’ve ever tried. Due to the super smooth texture and not overly full body, it is very easy to drink. I also noticed an elevated mood for hours after drinking it.
Dry leaves smell of chocolate cookies, fruit orchard (pear, apple). Wet leaves then have an aroma of fenugreek leaves and cooked fruit such as red plums.
The taste is initially quite fruity with woody undertones and a hint of walnut shells. Later, it gets more savoury and even reminds me of salmon. The aftertaste is cooling and has a particularly strong character of mountain flowers.
