*Flavor, Aroma, Boldness

There’s something ornately beautiful in the tiny molded green balled up leaves which comprise this Superior Ti Kuan Yin. There are some stems, but the quality seemed good and brews to a bright yellow-green.

The aroma was sweet but pungently bitter with hints of peach and honey.

Flavor-wise this tea is vegetal with notes of spinach and fresh kale while maintaining a milky or creamy texture. This tea does have a deal of an aptitude for sedimenting though which can cause a drier and more bitter finish, even with this tea’s already notably long tail.

I would recommend this Oolong to fans of dark Japanese greens or of greener more mossy pu’erhs.
