I’ve bought this tea for taking it everyday at work. On the bag it’s written “cinnamon and liquorice notes”, well – at first I couldn’t find them, but 5 minutes after drinking a cup, I could feel the liquorice taste in my mouth.
It’s a medium tea: there is a very light floral taste and something that reminds me of cereal, surprising. Nothing like the usual Tie Guan Yin, not bad, but not crazy either – a good tea for its price.
The thing that surprised me the most me with this tea is how hard it’s to brew : impossible to get something in a big teapot … I’ve tried a long steep, a short one, more leaves … nothing : a light faint taste of cereal, nothing more.
And in Gong Fu Cha, it works ! Surprisingly, the steep are quite long : 40’’ – 45’’ – 1’10 – 2’00 – 2’30.
