drank Red Lily by TeaFromVietnam
21 tasting notes

This is a rolled Jinxuan red tea, which I haven’t had before, so I added it to reach the free shipping threshold for my order. It is quite sweet with brown sugar and stonefruit notes; the “Jinxuan milk feel” is evident, but with some unexpected smoky/roast tones and spice when pushed. As expected it’s not super-dynamic, but it remained fairly interesting and lightened up with further steeps. The aftertaste is a little unusual for me; something like a mix of roast, sweetness, slight astringency and milky.

At ~$0.15/g, it’s not a terrible deal considering the educational value, but not a steal either. Doesn’t tick quite enough boxes for me. It’s worth trying and I will gladly finish my 50g to get a better impression of it.

Boiling 10 g 5 OZ / 150 ML
