From the first sip this tea is remarkable. It evokes the sense that you’ve found the tea you’ve been looking for. The touch it has on the palate is both smooth and crisp at the same time. After brewing a few solid rounds the flavors dance around in their sweetness. The roasting is not at all overbearing and creates the layers that TGY drinkers love so much. This is definitely a tea I cherished gongfu style on a cold rainy early evening in northern California. The flavors lingered and had a resonance into the night…Maybe somewhat unlike a king I felt sovereign in my solitude.
