This is an enjoyable tea with a heady aroma of honeycomb and orange blossom. Lots of juicy citrus and floral fruitiness along with a slight tartness. The taste and scent of this tea lives up to its Pomelo & Flower name. It compares favorably to TTC’s Citrus Scented Four Seasons which is quite remarkable considering this one is unflavored. The difference is YS’s is fruitier and thicker while the pomelo scented oolong has a more refined taste. Both are good in their own right, but lately I find myself craving the YS tea more.
I’ve tried many different ways of brewing this tea, and flash steeps at just below boiling seem to bring out the best flavor. Short steeps are key to minimizing bitterness. Packs a nice cha qi/caffeine punch too.
