Full-bodied tea with oily texture and beautiful golden colour with an orange tinge. The liquor is fairly clear and coats the mouth very well. It is also slightly mouth-watering.

The smell is not the strongest, but nice nonetheless. Overall it is a mix of floral and roasty smell not unlike with pour-ever coffee, but I also got reminded of apple pie.

The roast level here is mild, as a result of which the tea has a very good balance of sweetness and floral notes with the heavier roasted flavours. The aftertaste on the other hand is mostly a mix of sweet and sour.

I feel the best things about this tea are its texture and the perfect roast that gives it such a balanced taste. Oh, and it lasts for a while as well, one can easily get 10 nice infusions when brewing gong fu style.

Flavors: Apple, Baked Bread, Coffee, Dates, Floral, Rhubarb

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 g 34 OZ / 1000 ML

Currently, I am a PhD student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and only recently (in 2017) started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth. I rarely drink blends or white tea and avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied. The one thing that I am currently missing in my collection are teas from India, in particular some Darjeelings.
