WOW. Either I am the first to log this or I may have missed it.
Regardless…I’m drinking it courtesy of TTB.

I’m getting a hint of a peanut butter type smell underneath a vegetable smell.

It kind of reminds me of that Spicy Tofu Peanut Wrap at Quiet Storm in Pittsburgh that I have been craving lately. – Sorry for that side note/rant.

Anyhow…
Once it’s fully infused the nutty-scent disappears and it’s all about the veggie smell, which is fine. It’s a light brown on the verge of yellow-ish in color.

It does have a nutty taste to it and it is very nice…a bit of sweetness too!
Another great cuppa…thus far – I am having a wonderful tea day!

This is the last of my sample. There was more than enough for my tiny teapot, but not enough for a cup, so I made a super strong tiny teapot and steeped for a shorter time (thinking of Samovar’s recommendations as I did). I have to echo the hint of peanut butter. Now that I’ve read that, I’m totally getting it, too.

Very solid Tikuanyin. I especially like the scent of the dried rolled leaves – it is clear that the brewed cup will be dense with flavor, and sure enough, it is. The brewed scent is on a floral/vegetal boundary that is rather pleasant.

The complex color of the brew is less green than others of this variety that I’ve tried, perhaps the leaves are oxidized a bit more.

The taste is what one might expect from the scent but less buttery than the greener versions. It’s floral and sweet, a very soothing mixture that is best enjoyed as one reflects and relaxes.

The smell reminds me of the spring rolls at our local Asian market. I may have to reserve some for a rice dish. It has a very distinct oolong flavor similar to the dark oolong that we get a Chinese diner.
