Nice last tie guan yin of the year, but it’s flavour was not quite as strong as that of their previous winter tie guan yin.

First sip had unexpected sweetness to it, very soft and well suited to tie guan yin. The sweetness faded and was replaced by a mellow type of the typical tie guan yin aroma. Not especially strong, but good whatsoever. Lasted four infusions quite well, and was ok for six, after that it was clearly finished. Also a bit stronger infusions might be good, but I wouldn’t recommend anything beyond 1 minute 15 seconds.

Also very interesting development in the taste of the liquid as it cools down. It might be worth a try to make ice tea out of this one. (Using the hot water method.)
