drank Wuyi Golden Water by Wild Tea Qi
188 tasting notes

This was another sample from Wild Tea Qi. I used a smaller gaiwan 170 ml and about 5 gm of tea. This tea is comparable to the Big Red Robe I had yesterday but I think the fruit flavor more plum like. There is also lots of perfume flavors as well. One of those flavors gave me fits yesterday when I drank the BRR. It was when I went shopping in the farmers’s market for southeastern Asian herbs for bulgogi that it hit me like a brick. It’s that minty menthol flavor that is nuanced in these Wuyi’s that I enjoy. Specifically when I tried a leaf of Vietnamese coriander. The one difference is this tea has a bit more of that perfume. Oh and the last of the scones was a great accompaniment.
