黑崖上的花香、石源仙桂 2016


Taste profile

Cleansing fresh sweet wood aroma with accents of cinnamon and Chinese sacred lily (Narcissus tazetta, Shuixian). Hints of citrus peel. Smooth, malty infusion carried through with a cooling sensation between the teeth and an underlying woodsy tone. Soothing, round body accented with touches of cinnamon, citrus peel and Chinese licorice root. Long, malty sweet aftertaste and cooling aftereffect at the teeth, the tongue and the throat.

Infusion tips

For optimal results infuse at 90°C for longer durations or 95°C for shorter ones. A great selection for experimenting various gongfu techniques for different taste effects. Repeat infusion to get all the tea from the leaves. Too good to waste.

    Soft & creamy

    What a wonderful Wuyi oolong. It have all the character of teas from this area but in a softer and creamiest way. Deep and subtle smell . Nothing cares when you drink it. A must try before die.

    A Real Treat

    I would call this a mid-roast tea with a high floral aroma with sweet mineral flavours. My mouth is full of flavour, feeling, and the huigan is big! This is a big tea. Dry leaves are long. Layers of flavor and depth. A real powerhouse!
