Recent Tasting Notes

Made a light gaiwan tonight, as I don’t want to be up too late: probably half the number of leaves I would usually use.

The liquor is golden and the wet leaves smell incongruously like a Dan Cong tea: a hint of charcoal roasted stone fruit. The taste is light and gentle, just as I had hoped. A touch salty and mouth-coating but without any deep aromas.

Well into the third infusion the deeper flavors begin to appear, but the mouth feel is still subtle and comforting.

Golden rose liquor, a rich aroma, but the flavor is surprisingly neutral. On the third infusion I allowed for a 3 minute brew, and a slight malty taste appeared at the front of the mouth. I think next time a longer brew sooner would be best. Brewed in my aged Oolong Yixing pot.
