2008 Phoenix Mt. ShuiXian Dancong
This high mountain oolong was harvested from 400 year old trees that were planted at 1200 meters in the month of May.
Dry Leaf Aroma: Dried apricot and hops
Wet Leaf Aroma: Sweet malt with a savory trace of umami
Body:The initial taste is light and dry with notes of anise and wild herbs. The crisp body displays a restrained sweetness and sits gently on the tongue. A subtle balance of soft flowers and Chinese bitter almonds. This appetite enhancing tea makes a wonderfully delicate aperitif. Lovely display of high notes.
Finish:Fragile and cooling with more flowers at the end
Qi:Light hearted and pleasantly stimulating
