Lovely! This tea was such a delight to drink. Flowery and sweet, delicate and an almost lingering butteriness to it. I really need to get my hands on some more of JK’s Oolongs, especially since this was only a sample :/
2010 Spring Imperial Anxi Huang Jin Gui Oolong Tea
This Huang Jin Gui (Yellow golden osmanthus) is from Luoyan town in Anxi county, which is famous for its traditional Huang Jin Gui oolong tea. This Oolong tea is produced in accordance with the traditional Anxi Oolong tea making techniques, so it is obvious to detect the green leaves with red edges. Since the tea bush varietyHuang Jin Gu is different to Tie Guan Yin, its flavor and taste are also different.
Since the tea bush’s variety difference, the tea soup of Huan Jin Gui is comparatively yellower than other Anxi Oolong teas. But its taste is very full, mellow, thick, with its unique aroma. Another Anxi oolong tea experience except Tie Guan Yin.
All of our Anxi Oolong teas are vacuumed and stored in the freezer to keep them in super freshness condition. We will also vacuum all our Anxi Oolong teas when deliver to our clients.
