From Camellia Sinensis

The leaves of this tea are from a single tea plant, aged about 350 years old, rooted in the rocky slopes of the mountains in Feng Huang, Guangdong . A precise pluck offers us these beautiful twisted leaves, neatly rolled, which when infused release delicious floral and spicy aromas backed by vegetal notes. In the mouth the liquor is lively. Nuances of coconut and exotic fruits extend the experience of this great vintage.

Using up the last 2 teaspoons worth from my 10g purchase. The dry tea leaves have a nice sweet aroma to them. Once brewed in the gaiwan, the wet leaf has a pleasant bright emerald colour (pic: http://i.imgur.com/yUdL2.jpg) to it. I’m really glad that I did this last batch in the gaiwan, it’s a great vessel for looking at the leaves. Plus it just works out better since I’m doing multiple short steeps today.

Throughout the 5 quick steeps, I’m really enjoying the floral, spicy, sweet, “oolong” flavours.

Not really sure why I didn’t enjoy the other brews I had of this. Liking it much more today. You know it’s not something I’d buy again, because it’s a treat ($20 for 10g). But I’m happy to have been able to purchase and experience it once.

My second tasting and as I remembered the smells of this tea set your mind a spinning. I only had 3g left and used my smallest gaiwan with very little water. The aromas are equally represented in the flavors as well. Tons of flowers, hints of ground ginger and a bit of bitterness which oddly adds to the flavor profile. Subsequent steeps and a sweetness emerges along with that bracing bitter which is a kin to licking slate, all along with that sumptuous flower. There is also a great punch of energy that needs to be exploited with my day off today. May this single tree last many more centuries.
