Wǔ Yí Yán Chá, 武夷岩茶, Wuyi Rock Tea
The dry leaves are dark brown and ropey, twisted, with a smokey, milk chocolate aroma. The wet leaves in contrast have green hues and a spicy, fresh orchid, sharp, floral shop cut stems, and sweet aroma.
3.4g of dry leaves were infused in 120ml of water for 20sec.@90-100deg.C., producing a bright orange coloured tea liquor with an aroma similar to the wet leaves.
In the mouth it has a watery tingling sensation, moderate viscosity, is mouth watering, and stimulating, coupled with a sweet finish, and lingering minerality. The taste is somewhat suggestive of honey, orchid, is fresh green and floral, peppery, and the finish has a subtle drinking chocolate undertones.
