4 Tasting Notes
This one is good. This tuocha haven’t this battletaste of young Xiaguan tuochas, because it was produced in 2005. But it have a nice dark color of infusion and deep and rich shu notes in a taste.
Steep it for a 30 seconds first time.
This tea is made my yesterdays’ evening.
With strong aroma and well known Xiaguan taste, it bring the power to me every time I drink it.
Just don’t forget to grab the tea leaves from the water at right time :)
Ok… First time I tried this tea many years ago and I drink it during this years.
The taste of it is so so. Sometimes it taste like dust of Indian roads. But the main advantage of this tea is that you can buy it everywhere in Russia ;) And if you extremely need a cup of tea you can just go to the nearest local shop and you will find it.
Sometimes I use it when I infuse my herbal teas with raspberry and currant leaves, dog-rose, camomile etc.
So… to get a normal taste, you better mix this tea with milk or put some lemon pieces in the cup.
This is my description on the tea’s page, because I did not find nothing on the official site, so I will repeat…
This tea was first released in a second half of 2007 after the Pu-erh market crash, and it is loosely based on Jia Ji Tuocha. “Yan Yuan” means something like a “strong and fine predestination” while “Lu”, like I know, means that the tea is “green” or something like this.
The tea have refreshing and strong flavor. Just opened bag of five tuochas have a strong flavor of fresh mowed grass and then it turns into a strong nice smell of prunes.
