This was a sample for review
3g/50ml porcelain 212F
This is Alishan TGY. Dry leaf is highly aromatic of fruits, nuts and some floral. This tea takes boil temp well. It has tropical fruits notes (pineapple, lychee), roasted nuts and some florals on the background. Later steeps brought up dried fruits, cinnamon, nutmeg, mineral and slight pleasant bitterness typical to TGY. Some florals but it’s more fruity than floral if it makes sense. Later steeps I transferred leaves to my Hokujo kyusu which holds temp better than porcelain. I suggest you to drink it while it’s hot. As it cools bitterness is more pronounced. .
This Alishan TGY is very nice. If you like Muzha TGY you will enjoy it as well. I find it less finicky than Muzha and wallet friendly too .

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 3 g 2 OZ / 50 ML
