This is an intriguing, almost brothy Ti Kuan Yin. Not what I was expecting, but very good!

Hi Lainie. I’m not familiar with the term “brothy”. What does that mean?

Lainie Petersen

@MKstuder It has a savory, full bodied, quality, not unlike a soup broth. Make sense?

Makes perfect sense. The term “brothy” sounds like a good one to add to any tea drinker’s lexicon, especially since tea leaves used to be made into a soup and actually eaten with the broth (at least, that’s what I’ve read, wasn’t there in person - not that old). Have added this tea to my shopping list. So many teas, such a little yellow teapot. :)

Don’t know why part of my text is lined out. Hmmm… character limit?
