From Upton Tea Imports

This rare tea from the Hunan Province has a rich history, and was once a famous tribute tea. The flavor is light yet richly layered, with floral notes, a light, fruity aroma and a gentle bite on the palate. New lot.

Delicious stuff – quite a bit like a white, but subtly different. Rare primarily because it requires very special preparation, and number of tea masters who have the skill is dwindling.

This was Chairman Mao’s favorite tea, allegedly.

6g/pot for 3 minutes at 175°F.
Aromas: sweet, semi-light honeysuckle.
Liquor: golden, slight pale pinkish cast.
Body: medium. Surprisingly rich for the liquor’s appearance and light aroma. (Much more aroma in the wet leaves.)
Flavor: much less dramatic honeysuckle sweetness than in the aroma. Like white tea. Impressive body and endurance with mild sweetness create a creamy experience. Surprising contrast with the mild/pale-looking liquor.
Dry leaves: darkish brown-green with spots of light khaki down (otherwise smooth and hard).
