Not a sample from Teavivre (actual purchase).
With this tea, using a gaiwan will make an aromatic and flavorful tieguanyin. This version is way better than the organic version.
The colors of the leaves are just epic. There’s a fusion of green, deep green, and blue-green. These colors remind me of a Baozhong that I’ve had in the past.
I get floral, crisp (apple), and saffron (I think) notes. These notes are indicators of a great tieguanyin.
Not only are the leaves awesome, but the color of the liquid changes with each steeping. At first, I got a greenish infusion that transitioned to a golden yellow infusion with subsequent steepings.
This is my daily drinker. I’m really glad I purchased this tea over the organic tieguanyin, which is pretty crazy, because I never sampled this version before.
