#TodaysTea, #今天的茶 – Spring, 2019; var. Jinxuan; Taiwan; leaf & stem, semi-ball rolled, oolong tea process; high mountain
Infusion: I pkt in 150ml for 20sec.@95deg. C
Dry leaf aroma: sensationally aromatic, buttery/creamy, apricot, and honey melon;
Wet leaf aroma: biscuity, buttery, like a custard tart, with an apricot finish;
Liquor: pale yellow, with no noticeable aroma
Mouthfeel: thick, viscous, creamy, milky
Taste: fragrant, sweet, milky, retronasal hints of apricots, with coconut undertones.
Opinion: A very aromatic and approachable Tea. When brewed stronger the tea is mildly bitter with lingering aftertaste of liquorice and almond. When it then cools, the lingering, changes and leans toward liquorice and coconut. Quite complementary with an Imperial Stout. Very tasty.
