I picked this tea for it’s light scent hoping I would get something mild yet nice. While the tea was mild, there was a very grassy taste associated with it. There wasn’t any other elements that I noticed beyond that.
Drunken Concubine (Zui Gui)
Each year we choose a lot of Ti Kwan Yin Oolong that we think is the finest of that season’s selections. We hope that it will intoxicate the drinker with its sublime aroma and nuanced floral taste. Once fully opened, the rolled leaves are broad and long with serrated edges. The first steep is about aroma. In the second steep, the leaves begin to give up their treasured tastes and will do so for a number of steeps. The taste will linger long after drinking.
