Another outstanding year for this jewel of a tea. Vegetal tones of asparagus and spinach with a hint of sweetness and smooth as silk on the tongue. Really top notch. Pricey but if you need to pamper yourself this is where to do it.
This tea is from 2015, and I have to say it is pretty solid. I am not really a fan of Phoenix Wu Longs. I find no great flaws in them, but they dont get me excited. I find them a little to perfumey and thin. I bought Tea Drunk’s Zhi Lan Xiang cause I knew the cultivar was a little stronger than other Feng Huangs.
This medium roasted tea is quite nice. With a medium body, I describe this tea as having a squash/pumpkin taste. The fact it is a feng huang does add a little bitterness and texture, but this compliments nicely with the simple full flavor.
I would probably rate this tea higher, but since I am not a feng huang fan my bias comes into play.
Flavors: Pumpkin, Roasted
This is one of my favorite teas. I like this version better than their 2014. (The 2014 is still very good.)
This tea is freshing and sweet which gives it an overall cucumber sort of taste. When you dive into it a bit you taste a great honey comb flavor. To be clear I dont mean honey I mean honey comb, so its honey sweet but there is a waxy nuttiness too. Very clean finish. It subtle but there is a lot of flavor. Near perfection.
Flavors: Cucumber, Floral, Honey, Nutty, Vegetal
Definitely a great example of yancha sourced by this shop. Very expensive but it makes up for it in quality. Hand made of medium-high roast this tea from the foil package smelled so inviting, I literally drooled on myself. Brewed up a nice coppery tan with traditional gongfu in a thick walled gaiwan. Fruity floral aromas as soon as the first bit of water hit the leaves. The flavors are so perfectly blended that none stands alone, raspberry, chocolaty smokiness. Full bodied even after 7 steeps and a essence of the rock creeps in around that time. First class Tie Luo Han for those who want to pamper themselves.
I’m a sucker for well made Yancha. Never tried this varietal. Described as having intense floral aromas and that is exactly what you get and should get from anyWu Yi medium roast Yancha. Then onto the flavors of dried cherry, plum and the requisite smokey roastiness but it really doesn’t present the smoke as much as the roast. Mouth-feel is thickish and with subsequent steeps (Gong Fu, 100ml gaiwan) you need to wait until about the 7th for the rock to hit.
Everything you want in a Dan Cong. From dry to the spent leaf there is abundant florals touch of sweetness and amazing structure. Bright yellow-orange soup from my medium walled gaiwan, flavored direct representation of orange blossoms and peach-apricot pit. It is so pleasing that you dread finishing. Hats off to Shunan at Tea Drunk, her sourcing continues to marvel.
This tea will change everything you know about white tea.
A soft but full body, this tea reminds me of a pu er. If raw pu er was a beautiful lady it would be this tea.
There is a soft flavor of woodsy mixed with dark caramel. A touch of fruityness and a full aroma.
After drinking this tea you will never call white tea soft and subtle again, but you’ll love it even more.
Flavors: Almond, Caramel, Fruity
Smmmooooothh. Subtle smoke and a fresh red tea flavor underneath. Very small leaf, come’s in a packet. Used a standard gaiwan, short steeps lasted for about 10 steeps. Nice product, and very enjoyable whenever you need a hint of smoke, say with a bowl of oatmeal, topped with smoked salmon and a poached egg. Yummy.
Flavors: Graham Cracker, Pine, Smoked, Smooth
Gongfu with yixing. Used more tea than usual and steeped at a lower temp to allow this yummy tea to last. The yixing softens the already sumptuous floral, fruity flavors and balances the steeps in the long haul. Tea Drunk has great teas, but for me their oolongs are out of this universe. This is what I want and expect in a MI Lan Xiang.
Flavors: Apricot, Honey, Honeysuckle
Described to me in the store as a purer form of Bai Ye not as overpowering as others. It is very subtle. Hints of orange/bergamot among the peach florals. Leaves all uniform going from rich brown to dark greenish brown. More rock flavor as you go, standard steeps 10/15/20/20/30/30/45/60/75/90/120/150/180
