From Canton Tea Co

Yellow Gold Oolong

Other names: Hunag Jin Gui Wu Long, Golden Osmanthus Oolong

Huang Jin Gui means Golden Osmanthus, so called because its yellowish green leaves produce a golden liquor and it has a distinct Osmanthus flower-like aroma. It is a high-grown tea from Fujian that starts with a fruity flavour but becomes more sweetly floral.

This is one of the four famous Anxi Oolongs (like Tie Guan Yin) but it is made from the top leaves of the first spring harvest in Anxi County. These leaves can be infused several times and the character changes with each brew. It has become hugely sought-after due to its delicious easy-drinking nature and its affordable price.

From Ricky again.

This is quite pleasant, but frankly I’m not super blown away by it. It’s smooth and soft, somewhat buttery and there is a hint of apple in the flavour along with a whole lot of floral-ness.

It’s a pleasant cup to have while reading, but it’s not one that sends me into throes of ecstacy or invites long moments of contemplation.

(I know I haven’t been around much lately, and lurking when I have. I’ve got a new stack of books and am also terribly distracted elsewhere on the internets for the time being. I shall return as soon as possible to my usual patterns)

Really smooth. Buttered veggies and some floral aspects.
