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
Very nice yancha, smooth with the perfume of shui xian and the vegetals of tie guan yin, steeps 10/15/20/30/45/60/90/120/240. Used 175F in a gaiwan very good structure through out the process, slight rock taste, never overpowering, sound offering from Tea Drunk.
Best tea I have ever tasted, no really. Gong fu yixing @ 175F.
I have to tell you. I did not rinse this tea, reason being, it is a bit on the expensive side, did not want any to go to waste.
Does that make me dirty? I had a 3 second pang of filth but soon got over it after I sipped the first steep which was in/out of the yixing as the rinse, but it landed in my tummy instead.
Insane tastes of vanilla, banana, caramel, madeleine, mango, roasted walnut.
3,6,9,15,20,25,30,40,50,60,80,110,130 were the steeps.
It did not end, pure bliss. The rock came in about the 6th steep but the aforementioned flavors kept strong into the 8th.
This tea has me floored, but then again I love good cliff teas.
Thank You Shunan.
Had this in Tea Drunk shop with Shunan at the counter teaching me how to brew this tea. She used a clear glass faircup and showed how to spot a good BLC from looking at the leaves. The flavors were off the chain. Toasted pine nuts with a yellow cake flavor and a hint of herbaceous hay. The experience was great.
