Sample from my recent order. The year wasn’t labelled on the package, so I’m categorizing it as this year’s for now. It does look and smell fresh, with a distinct floral fragrance. I know Verdant has described a completely different tea as “mi lan xiang” (Aglaia odorata fragrance), but this one really fits that description as well. I often find this fragrance in other Anxi Tie Guan Yins too.
The tea liquor is pale in color, with a crisp, light taste. The floral notes are very much intact. This is the “greenest” Tie Guan Yin I’ve ever had, and it does go to the head a little bit. A very delicate spring tea that is probably best enjoyed in moderation.
