From Hello Teatime (Aliexpress)

This Fujian zhangping shui xian tea is our new developed tea,quite different from our any other zhangping shui xian tea.Its making process is almost same as others,expect the process that it is high heat baked.As a result,this tea not only exists strong flower fragrance and also fresh roasted strong black coffee fragrance,that is to say it mixs together the flavors of our standard zhangping shui xian tea and da hong pao tea.And the tea cake looks darker,tea water also more darker,just like tea water of da hong pao.It is special,believe da hong pao and fragrance tea lovers will like it very much!Why not try it?

This tea was pretty decent – I have already tried a couple of Hello Teatime’s greener Shui Xian pillows. I’m normally partial to roasted teas, so I was pretty excited to give this one a go. The dry leaf had a bit of a chocolatey aroma. After the pillow met with water, it smelled a little bit roasty with a nice floral sweetness.

The flavor was a little bit delicate, unless I oversteeped it by accident, which is a bit surprising considering I put the whole ~8g pillow in my 100mL gaiwan. It started out with a bit of roasty, burnt sugar notes, followed by a lingering sweet floral aftertaste. As the session progressed, the sweetness got a little bit more earthy and thick, while still retaining its floral character. It even moved a little bit into the resinous category for a couple steeps. The texture is decently thick, but I wasn’t wowed by it. If pushed, this tea can develop a bit of a sour note, as many roasted oolongs can in my experience.

I think I might have one more of these to try, and I will need to try it before I can pass judgement on this one. I enjoyed it, but it left me wanting more.
