Sometimes my simple brain convinces me that I am sick of Tieguanyin. Then I see it sitting there in the cupboard, and grab it and smell it and say, “Hot damn this is some good stuff in here.”
Such a great, solid brew. So full of flavor, so bright and crisp, such a clean finish, with hints of tropical fruit and flowers.
I’ve had several Tieguayins in my life, this one is very close to the top, only surpassed by a gift from a student years ago bought in China when they were back visiting family.
This is possibly one of my favorite teas in general. So. Damn. Good.
