From Mandala Tea

Shui Jin Gui or “Golden Water Turtle” is a varietal named after the hunched over shape of the bush it comes from. It is a rich and savory tea and one of the top four roasted oolongs in China.

It sports a hint of dark chocolate and slight maltiness in flavor. Complexity abounds as other flavors that bounce around the palate include caramel, spice, root vegetable. Get the aroma cups out for this one as the scent it leaves behind is rich and thick. This tea leaves the drinker feeling like a million bucks, the energy is clean and even.

Just an additional note to my previous review on this since I finished my order of this tonight. I really enjoyed it and will keep it on my cupboard. I hope some of you pros will review this since I’m far from having “absolute taste” hehe. There is so much here in these infusions and only know “This tastes so good” vs “Bleh”.

Having said that… This tastes so good. ^^

Speaking of " absolute taste" it reminds me of a series Alice in Paris (Amazon prime) which I adore where I learned the term. She discovers at a young age that she has the ability to detect ingredients in food. I’m far from it so thank you all for your reviews, it helps me so much what to look for when I do try the teas you all like.

Have a great night.^^
