Thank you Vicony Teas for this free sample!
I decided to try this tea while listening to D. Scarlatti sonatas. Tea always makes listening to music more enjoyable for me.
There were no stems, only long, dark leaves. They smelled of sweet fruit. Like the other Wuyi Yancha teas I’ve tried, the leaves themselves remind me of little charcoals. The brewed leaves smelled of cherries and wine, and were a bit toasty.
20 second steep times for this tea.
The brewed tea was a light brown, and smelled very buttery with a hint of toastiness. My first sip was smokey, buttery, and sweet. Very nice.
This cup was very floral, and much sweeter than the first. Some smokiness showed through, however it was not as noticeable as the first.
This was nice, silky, buttery, and floral. The characteristic smokey flavor from the other brews was still present.
I really liked this tea, and am happy to have tried it- especially with great music.
