From Crimson Lotus Tea

Honeybomb is pure Jingmai sweetness. This blend is all the best from this Spring in a very affordable package. We have old tree, big tree, young tree, and huang pian material blended to maximize that Jingmai honey sweetness. This tea is a mellow treat. There is just enough bitterness and astringency to keep things interesting. It brews up with a rich golden color. The aromas are in the floral sphere. This tea is sweet and vibrant in the mouth. This is easily a daily drinker sheng. Let this tea age for a couple years and the honey aroma will deepen.

I was very curious about this one after reading a review from TheOolongDrunk over on instagram & I’m glad I went for it because I’m enjoying it a lot – definitely has a lot of the characteristics of Jingmai sheng that I like so much; incredibly soft texture, smooth floral undertones, and a great sweetness that permeates each steep. CLT describes this as a “mellow treat” and I honestly couldn’t agree more, though I appreciate the VEERRRRYYY delicate astringent finish that adds to a slightly more complex and textured session. To be honest, I’m not sure I completely agree with “honey” as a flavour description of the beautiful sweetness – but regardless I’m definitely not disappointed in the tea in the least bit. Lovely, lovely session!
