I’ve had this tea sitting for two months unopened. So finally got around to trying it out today.
This tea is AMAZING!!!
When I opened the bag the fragrance of the tea was sooo good. Kind of a bit like a black tea, a bit like a green, fruity and fresh. I couldn’t stop sniffing it.
I brewed this at 80C for 2 min. I usually brew my whites at 90. Some use 70C. I figured I would change things up and go inbetween.
First infusion was intoxicating. Sweet and creamy (like in the Jin Xuan oolongs), with a fruity flavour (a bit like grape) and slightly malty. The sweetness was not overly strong but it had caramel notes. There was a little fruity tang to it too. I also got nutty notes like in green tea.
2nd infusion was more caramel and fruit. Less creamy/nutty.
There were elements of this tea that was like black, then white, and then green. What a unique tea! Glad I bought this one!
