Soft, floral, and yet warm aroma of steamed mung bean with light accents of gardenia and hint of lily. Characteristic Huangshan green tea style of smokey undertone. Silky soft infusion that is sweet and malty, tinkling with minute touches of fresh herbs and cream. Sweet aftertaste with a cereal suggestion and a light lip burning sensation.
For better accents of its aroma, use shorter infusion durations and more leaves. Smaller infusion vessels fare better than larger ones. 85°C gives you a sweeter, smoother and more floral note, higher temperature a stronger body and more bites in both the aroma and taste.
