From Camellia Sinensis

Due to its typical terroir, the Wuyi Mountains region produces teas known as “rock teas” including the famous Rou Gui. The infusion of its large twists liberates warm notes of bark, spices and roasted nuts. Its lively and fruity (green apple) liquor evolves towards a finish marked by the mildly spicy flavor of Chinese cinnamon, a literal translation of Rou Gui!

Just a late night mug of it while binging some Game Grumps on Youtube. There’s something very hilarious, to me, in the contrast between such a warm, comforting and nuanced cup of tea like a Rou Gui when paired with two very loud, sort of sexually deviant Youtubers shouting into their microphones as they trash talk each other rather violently during an especially aggressive game of Monopoly. I think the delicate, calming elements of the tea cancel it out, though…

Tasting notes were roasted pecans and almonds, oak wood, tree bark, raisin, cinnamon, REALLY light hints of dark cherries, and a somewhat floral finish. A lot of flavours to unpack in this one; but if you take the time to focus on it in between shouting matches about unfair Community Chest rewards and immediately hitting luxury tax after passing go then it’s a really unique, interesting varietal with a lot of interesting qualities.
