Thanks ashmanra for sending me some of this to try! It sounded sooooo good in everyone’s reviews, and it is from one of my favorite regions!
The first thing that came to mind was how it’s more sweet and subtle than Hao Ya A, but still packs a punch. Very rich. More like a languorous richness vs. Hao Ya A’s laserbeam POW! I wouldn’t call it smoky…it’s less smoky than the lightly smoky Queen Catherine. It’s more roasty but it has this – not lemony but this very sweet fruity highlight at the end of the sip? Really, really good. I would purchase this in LESS than a heartbeat! :) I’m CRAZY for it!
Many, many, many, many thanks ONCE AGAIN to ashmanra, who has introduced me to SO MANY of my favorite teas!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo Rat Lunch 4ever!!!!!
