1 Tasting Note
I tried this (very economical) tea because my daily Tie Guan Yin routine was starting to eat holes into my collge student-budget.
It comes in tightly rolled balls and the smell of the dry leaf is very reminiscent of good Tie Guan Yin. It takes about 2 infusions to open up and fully develop flavour. Although it lacks the complexity and freshness of high-quality Tie Guan Yin, it’s very well-rounded tea with a long aftertaste and quite some cha qi.
I started drinking it daily. If you like rather green Oolongs and if you’re in need of an affordable daily drinker, this is a very fitting choice.
