I’ve finally made my way over to this brew. I’m going to start off by saying that I brewed gongfu, and I believe this should be brewed western (I have trouble listening). Anyways, this is still a decent brew. The leaves have several tangerine husks scattered throughout. The dry leaf has a citrus scent with earth mixed in. I placed a small amount (didn’t have much) in my warmed gaiwan, and I gave it a shake. The warmed scent is sweet and dry with, of course, tangerine aromas. I washed the leaves and prepared for brewing. The liquor is a clear crimson. The taste is nice and sweet. There is a lot of broken leaf, so the brew made quite a mess. There is a numbing sensation of the tongue, which is followed by a light tangerine creme flavor. This is a nice drink, but it is not overly complex. I strongly believe this would be more appeasing if brewed western. I was able to pull about five steeping sessions from this brew. The flavor is still dessert like, earthy, wooded, and heavily drying. It’s a good experience, but it’s not something I’d personally own. Also, I just learned that this company is not too far from, so I may be stopping by for tea.
