372 Tasting Notes
I decided to dedicate my new Xu De Jia teapot to Phoenix oolongs, and this was the first tea I brewed in it. This tea has notes of grapefruit, lychee, and the astringency reminds me of biting into a seed in a raspberry sauce. There is a definite spiciness too. The floral notes aren’t as strong as I prefer, and the finish isn’t lingering. Still one of my favorites.
