Ban tian yao 2016 from Wuyi origin. very pleasant relaxing and balanced tea. It has a little smoky taste, frutal, mineral and with a pronounced sugarcane finish. This tea is very subtle, almost like a Baijiguan, but more roasted and more robust in the beginning.
Wet leaves with typical wuyi aroma with chocolat and woody notes. Medium roast.
I steep this tea with 7 gr. at 87° C. First steep 20 sec., adding 5 sec. each subsecuent steeps until 8th. steep. From 9th. to 12th. 15 sec. each and fron 13th. to 15th. 30 sec.
First infusion shows a subtle smoky flavor with typical mineral flavor and a little frutal aftertaste. This continues fron 2th. to 8th. infusion. Then soup becomes with a very nice sweet and frutal flavor that linger in mouth a lot. Total fifteen steeps.
Tea is very nce and balanced, so subtle. It remains me Baijiguan cultivar, but more complex and a little more strong flavor. It´s a relaxing tea very good to share with your friends
