From Verdant Tea

Qilan is a luscious, floral varietal most famous for its cultivation in Wuyishan as a roasted oolong. This exciting green expression of Qilan from Anxi brings out all the sweet florals that make Qilan varietal unique, strengthening them with light processing and the floral mineral-heavy terroir of Master Zhang’s land above Daping.

So juicy!! Bursting with floral flavours and the juiciness and sweetness of bubblegum.

TotM describes this as orchid, lotus, burdock, honey & barley. Also, “intriguingly floral” and I’ll give them that. I am consistently amazed that tea which is not actually scented with flowers can be this flowery.

The mineral terroir, the barley, the ganmaicha… these things I don’t get so much. Even up against a very sweet, home made, wild grape jelly this tea doesn’t present as anything but light and floral to my palate.

In the fourth steep a darker, more vegetal note does begin to emerge, but nothing mineral or roasted.
