TASTING NOTES

A sweet and floral fragrance with flavour notes of lychee, vanilla and honey. A smooth texture and satisfying mouth-fill with a lingering sweet after taste, if brewed correctly, there is little to no bitterness or astringency to this tea. Whilst the tea tastes great with a standard teapot steep, it really benefits from brewing Gong-Fu style, with each infusion highlighting a different characteristic of the tea. The first infusion highlights its floral fragrance; the second and third highlights the lychee and stone fruit flavours. Subsequent infusions show off the honey-like sweetness and oolong flavour of the tea.
