1 Tasting Note
Took a random punt on Aliexpress and glad I did. This one is interesting to me. The black and white cake is tightly packed but comes away quite nicely. White buds and almost black (under home lights) first and possibly second leaves.
This is my first review and first time with this tea so I may come back and edit this with updates. After a quick rinse the lid aroma is slightly malty with a subtle sweetness that I cannot describe as my descriptive skills are somewhat lacking. Initially there is the light maltiness and hay you get with Bai Mu Dan with subtle notes of button mushroom sweetness you get with a young sheng. I am also getting a dried burley tobacco flavour. There is a lovely sweet finish to this one.
Currently on infusion 5 and the there is mild astringent coating inside my mouth and the sweetness is growing. There is no bitterness. I’m sure there are several more infusions to go. I am definitely getting a physical response to this tea, getting a little sweat on, not something I normally experience. Looking forward to giving this another go.
