Bought this tea from a lovely family-owned tea shop in Taipei called Chang Hsie Shing / Zhang Xie Xing Tea Shop (張協興茶行). We tried maybe six teas there and most of them really impressed us but unfortunately we only had enough cash to buy two (and a pitcher). The name “Bo Luo Mi” translates to “Pineapple Honey”.

1st infusion: 194˚F
A delicious malty, juicy, slightly floral aroma. Reminds me a bit of the caramel-y sweet Shan Lin Xi Winter Sprout from Song Tea & Ceramics, but a bit more tropical. Liquor is fresh and sweet.

2nd infusion: 200˚F
Still retains the sweet delicious characteristics from the first infusion, but the flavour and aroma has mellowed out and becomes easier to pair with food.

3rd infusion: 202˚F
After the top notes of the aroma have been stripped away, the underlying nature is revealed. Now I see that this tea shares some characteristics with high-quality Tieguanyin.
