From Tea Habitat

TH description: Zhi Lan Xiang – Cattleya Orchid Fragrance is highly adored by tea drinkers, including myself. There are a few trees over 100 years old grown in different villages with its own micro climates. Such slight difference is reflected in each tree, individually unique. This tree is grown in Zhong Ping village. It has a mild and delicate orchid fragrance, sweet and long last. Purity is its personality, both fragrance and sweet taste are pure, not overpowering, not overwhelming, just perfectly delicate! 120 years old, 980 meters above sea level.

Stunning initial sweet fruity scent when put into the preheated Chao Zhou teapot. Unfortunately I forgot to weigh the tea beforehand.

And the tea lives up to the preview aroma: superbly fragrant, sweet, fruity, delicious first infusion at 10 seconds. Very little change yet at the third very brief infusion. Gorgeous stuff.

Up to the 6th or 7th—lost track. Still keeping infusions fairly short, this one will be about 20 seconds. Have to set it aside for now, more later!

Now on to the 12th or so, after the poor leaves had to sit overnight. Some of the wonder was definitely lost in the sitting overnight, but still, this sweetwater phase is pretty sweet—nudging the rating up a bit more. LOVE this one.

If it were any more intensely aromatic and floral it would be too much—it’s right up there, close to the line that divides ‘fantastic!’ from ‘like drinking shampoo, yuck!’, waving at all the jasmines that went too far into undrinkability.
