Jin Guan Yin, 2011 Fall Anxi Oolong
Flavor and Aroma:
When tasting this tea, it is apparent that this version of Jin Guan Yin is a cross between Tie Guan Yin and Huang Jin Gui. The initial flavor and aroma are penetratingly floral like a good green style Tie Guan Yin, but the liquor is generally thicker and more mouth coating than Tie Guan Yin alone. The aftertaste has the lingering sweetness & floral attributes of Huang Jin Gui. To our senses, this tea provides an excellent, well balanced & highly enjoyable drinking experience, especially for all the fans of green style oolong teas. Fall Oolongs from Anxi are the most floral and aromatic of the seasonal harvests, and I simply couldn’t resist adding some of this past Fall’s crop to the catalog.
