This is a sample for review.
i really like the Tea Yuan yancha offerings are high roasted. its not common, most of the places are offering medium roast. high roast if done right is much more complex and enjoyable in my opinion
This Rou Gui is high roasted. The roast is nicely done, doesnt mask the fruitiness of this tea. the color is dark and pretty. it doesnt have that strong cinnamon flavor associated with Rou Gui, but its been awhile since i had one with noticable cassia(cinnamon) flavor. When i pushed for longer steeps it didnt get bitter or unpleasant.
It was very enjoyable, thank you Tea Yuan for the chance to try it!
