Additional notes (2 years later ^^):
The profile is still similar to good Anxi Tie Guan Yin. The dry leaves are green with a TGY light aroma, floral aroma. I’ve learned that I’m not really a Dan Cong fan but I do enjoy this version. I got a very light nutty taste, as well as some light citrus and fruit notes, and green vibes. Spinach, asparagus… Vegetal. So it’s very complex with the fruit and vegetal notes and a finish of light sweetness. It has a very slick feel to it, buttery.
I put in 8g in a 160 ml gaiwan, rinse, 10s, 20s, 30s, 1 min. and a few more.
I made it through my surgery on the 5th and I was ok’d for Barley tea (been drinking a lot of TeaVivre barley tea yum) but I thought I’d have something a little different today. My esophagitis/Gerd seems fixed but I won’t push it quite yet. :P
I hope you are all good. <3
