Maybe it’s my ignorance about the term “medium roast,” but I expected this tea to have more oomph. The second infusion had a little more of a nutty bite, but in general this is a decent, light Tie Guan Yin, but I’ll continue looking for something with a bit more roast.
2011 Spring "Medium Roast" Premium Grade Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea
A thick leaf version of Premium grade Tie Guan Yin was gradually roasted for several hours across two days. The outcome is a delicious nutty affair that gradually releases it subtle flavors across 10 or more infusions. The taste is smooth and sweet, soothing to the mouth and stomach.
