Tea provided by Teavivre for review
First steep exceeded my expectations. It’s very floral of course, but not in an obnoxious way. And there is an almost menthol like refreshing sensation with each sip.
Second through fourth steeps were very consistent in flavour. But on my fifth steep I started tasting some nectarine (fruit) notes along with spices.
Sixth through seventh steeps were still very flavourful with a nice touch of sweetness.
I have not gone out of my way to try many tie guan yin teas, but this one really impressed me. I’m not even sure what else I would expect from this tea. Just an amazing experience all around. :)
100 ml gaiwan, sample size, 7 steeps and rinse
