I was served this tea gong-fu style at Pekoe Tea in Edinburgh.

The first infusion reminded me of houjicha flavour but was also quite complex. I could taste a faint note of cinnamon. There was also a roasted and floral flavour. The wet leaves smelled a lot like pumpkin seed. I noticed a little bit of oolong bitterness- possibly because it was brewed too long, I’m not entirely sure what the standards are for serving this tea in the shop.

The second infusion had a smooth bean note with a wheat flavour.

I didn’t track the tasting notes for the infusions after that- I was having a great conversation with one of my classmates!

The complexity of the flavour is what I like most about this tea. I would definitely try it again if I had the chance- although it is quite expensive.

Flavors: Beany, Cinnamon, Floral, Roasted, Wheat
