    This tea isn’t what I was expecting from gu shu Hong cha at all. It’s very elegant and gentle with both in flavour and in terms of energy.
    The liquor is not as thick as I was expecting, but still has a nice lubricating mouthfeel and sweet fruity taste that lingers in the mouth and throat for ages. For me this tea is quite like a nice gu shu Pu erh for mouthfeel and energy, which is relaxed and makes me feel happy and positive.
    A really great asamica which will have you reaching for the kettle again and again.
