drank 2013 Rou Gui by Tea Yuan
16 tasting notes

I’ve been searching for a new wuyi supplier after the one I’ve been using for about 8 years started going unreliable on me. After a fairly wide net, my new favorite is Tea Yuan, and this is the first of their teas that really captured my heart. I’m normally not a huge rou gui guy – it often seems cloyingly and dumbly cinnamon. But this stuff has weird, dry life – like a lovely clean glowing ocean of a not actually cinnamon, but just the dryness of cinnamon. Subtle and alive.

I’ve been drinking tea and writing about it for a long time. I recently wrote a guide to gong-fu brewing, and I’d love feedback on it: https://objectionable.net/2016/09/05/time-slices-of-tea-how-to-brew-gong-fu-style-part-i-oolong-baby/
