From Adagio Teas

A delicate black tea from Fujian Province harvested early in the Spring. The leaves are panfried and hand-rolled, capturing a fresh, sweet flavor unique to the season. Downy golden curled buds are interspersed throughout this majestic tea evoking visual color-play between gold and black. The heady aroma of both the dried and infused leaves has a distinct savory-sweet note that transcends richly into the cup. A decadent, almost “meaty” aftertaste makes for a very satisfying umami-sweet experience.

Dry leaf has that stewed-plum aroma I’ve noticed in a lot of the black teas I like. I had a sniff of the wet leaf after pouring off the liquid, and was met with an ashy smell so strong that I recoiled a bit. The liquor itself didn’t taste of ash, thankfully, but there was a mysterious musky taste that I wasn’t all that fond of. I didn’t strongly dislike it, but there are so many other teas I like better.

Not as intense as I am used to drinking…perhaps I understeeped? The scent is amazing and the leaves are gorgeous.

A really great black tea. It tastes like someone spritzed a honey mist into the air and passed the tea leaves through it. Just enough to let you know it is there, but not enough to make it sweet.

I’m still working on the sample tin. I want to order more, but I need to replace my tea strainer first. When I have the means to do loose leaf tea again, this will be my all-purpose tea. It’s great for breakfast, and I suspect it will make an excellent iced tea (after all, it’s still pretty tasty even after it gets cold in the cup).

Did I do something wrong? I did the standard teaspoon, boiling, 5 minutes. The result was much lighter than I expected, and the tea seemed a bit watery. I caught only hints of the meaty taste that I was expecting. Maybe I’ve just been drinking too many strong blacks.

They’re not kidding about the umami with this one; it’s super-aromatic with a thick mouthfeel, and the best I can describe it is as bracing. Definitely not for those who prefer more delicate flavors, but I could see this being a lifesaver on a cold winter morning.
