Brewed in a zisha at boiling. This tea opened up with lots of tropical fruits on the nose which slowly became an interesting savory herbalness. The brew is a thick golden color. Lots of honey sweetness which sits in the back of the throat and lingers on and on. Nice thickness with a good amount of slickness. Very slurpable. Good tropical fruit flavors with apricot and mango sticking out for me. QI is very energetic, strong, and heady. Lots of huigan on this with a lot of cheek salivation as well. Bitterness starts off non-existant and then slowly creeps in. Very dense, lush, and primal. Jungle like herbal and floral notes float around. One sip and my mouth is filled with floral perfume and never ending notes of honey, this sweetness lingers on and on causing lots of salivation. Cooling sensation is light. Good minerality and a hint of black pepper on the front palate. The qi almost bowled me over for a bit. For the price I’m a big fan of this tea. fresh notes of tropical fruit, lots of florals, jungle like savory herbal notes with lots of huigan and salivating, qi is very strong.
