Spring 2016 harvest.
Drank this alongside the 2016 bamboo roasted tung ting, but lost my notes yesterday. This one is medium roasted, and steeps out a bit lighter in color than the other initially, but the color of the liquors gradually becomes more similar after several steeps. The roast definitely helps bring out some of the flavors in this one without overpowering them. I can still get a sense of florals, but they’re rather light, and there is a vanilla cream sweetness present. At the beginning of the session, there is a lemon peel-like hint of citrus that gradually evolves into more of the orange peel flavor noted by the vendor.
Easy to drink and lasts for a good number of steeps, remaining smooth and creamy throughout the entire session.
Flavors: Floral, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest, Smooth, Sweet, Vanilla
