This is a nice, albeit somewhat unremarkable hong cha. In the smell I get notes of malt, brown sugar, chocolate, nuts, blackberries and sweet pepper. The taste is balanced and can sometimes appear a little flat. I noticed notes of malt, cherry wood, orange zest and bread crust. Aftertaste is not very long and displays even more of the citrusy qualities.
The tea has a medium body with a liquor that’s not very coating, although it has decent thickness. The mouthfeel is a bit powdery, but it becomes smoother when cooled down.
