A relatively sweeter, rounder and more floral aroma than the premium version of Taiping Houkui. Hints of apricot on a light undertone of baked mung bean. Smooth body that is slightly sweet hinting dried apricot and jujube balanced with a slight umami in the character of baked seaweed. Sweet, lingering aftertaste at the top of the throat.
The best way to prepare this tea is the polarized temperature (ice-fire) technique. Put 3~4 small ice cubes on the bottom of a tall glass chahai and then 3 grams of tealeaves to each 200 ml of the glass capacity. Pour in boiling water quite slowly and then cover for 6 minutes. Decant into a cup or another glass. A quenching,, delicious glass of green tea is ready to serve.
