When I first was getting into tea, I saw how popular this was and figured I had to at least buy a sample. Luckily I got some of the last tea left. Seeing as it is going up for sale again I figured I would try it out to see if it’s something I want more of.
Dry smell: This is definitely the best smelling tea I have ever experienced. It has the floral notes of the spring TGY and the lightness of the yunnan white jasmine. I was expecting it do have a very deep, dark smell but it is very sweet and light. It is almost as if the aroma is dancing around :) on smell alone this tea is a 100
Wet smell: As soon as the water hits the tea it gives of the deep black tea smell I was expecting. It still has some of the floral and I think it may have even become sweeter (if that’s possible) but it now has an intoxicating aroma like a mix between laoshan black and sugar.
Taste: This tea is incredibly smooth all the way from entry into you mouth to the swallow. It is very thick and flows nicely. There is a long sweet chocolatey aftertaste. I can hardly describe the flavor. It is very very sweet and deep yet still with a light flavor. It has a cocoa flavor and a vegetal flavor. There is no bitterness or astringency what so everI will never be able to do this tea justice. I had high expectations and this tea goes above and beyond. Definitely purchasing an. ounce or two
