Drinking this tea in my probably-fake yixing pot today. I’ve tried this tea once before, and generally, I’m not too well exposed to roasted oolongs and don’t quite have a taste for them yet, but I’ll try to do my best.
Generally, this tea brews out very smooth. No bitterness and a very mild astringency to be found here. The mouth feel is very round and mellow, with no particular high notes to speak of (though I believe this is one of the allures of this kind of tea!).
I’m not very good at picking out those middle notes yet. There’s definitely a little bit of sharpness in the way the roasted flavor comes out, but other than that it’s quite smooth overall. I’m not really picking up “honey sweetness”, though maybe I have a misunderstanding of what that feels like.
