A very clean tea with expressive notes of sweet peach and berries off the rinse. Immediate thoughts after the rinse and first infusion is ‘aged white tea vibes’. Fruity berries with a comforting underlying sweetness that can return swiftly on the cheeks. Brewing this tea long will invoke a creeping astringency and energy along side a loooong herbal aftertaste. Chi is more refrained energetic, not harsh energetic! The structure of this tea is SOLID, great mouthfeel and a smooth nature, I know the qualities of this tea will only enhance with age and thus, I have a plan…
This tea really lends itself to ageing, especially careful Guangdong ageing. it’s got a great structure. I originally pressed a case of this tea to be stored in Guangzhou for 3 years with the intention of release afterwards. Ive now decided to release 2 tongs per year only until the 3 year mark and then release the rest. Don’t get me wrong, this tea is a delight right now, it’s just going to improve very well!
