Nan Jian or otherwise known as ‘Feng Huang’ is an old well established factory based in Lincang county. Compression…you’ll be happy to hear is loose which makes for braking this Tuo up a breeze!
Cut grass, tobacco and old books on the rinse aroma.
The flavour on the 1st steep will hit you right away. Herbal, tobacco and aged pinewood all at once. Slight sweetness lingers. Texture starts of well. The faintest vain of bitterness is present in this light copper broth. Light and bitter smokey notes hang. The old, deep pinewood, cedar flavour enhances along side the bitterness making for an expressive and still balanced drop. This tea definitely sits straight up in the savoury rather than sweet department. Later the aftertaste expands and more pronounced sweetness may be noticed around the cheeks and back of the mouth.
