I seem to be reviewing only teas from Théhuone these days. I don’t bother ordering tea from foreign shops this part of the year, so I turn to a local shop.

Their wintercrop-TGY was really good last year, and quite good this year too. The floral aroma isn’t as aggressive as it can be, and I like that. Sweetness is quite interesting, too.
I think this is quite good tea, not spectacular but good. Great tea for waiting the spring.

Nice last tie guan yin of the year, but it’s flavour was not quite as strong as that of their previous winter tie guan yin.

First sip had unexpected sweetness to it, very soft and well suited to tie guan yin. The sweetness faded and was replaced by a mellow type of the typical tie guan yin aroma. Not especially strong, but good whatsoever. Lasted four infusions quite well, and was ok for six, after that it was clearly finished. Also a bit stronger infusions might be good, but I wouldn’t recommend anything beyond 1 minute 15 seconds.

Also very interesting development in the taste of the liquid as it cools down. It might be worth a try to make ice tea out of this one. (Using the hot water method.)
