Description

December 19th, 2020

Please note the pictures are of the 2017 crop from this producer, which was medium roasted. I'll have pictures of the current batch and its liquor up soon!

This lovely rougui was grown in the Banyan area, outside the protected area of the Wuyishan Protected Area. This is a high roast offering, roasted and then re-roasted over charcoal in the traditional way, and is a lovely, clean tea that passed Chinese standards for pesticides with flying colors! 

This tea is very smooth to drink and the classic rougui flavor is very well balanced: it is not in your face, and you don't have to strain to taste the lovely flavors this tea has to offer. Stone fruit (plums, prunes), cassia (Chinese cinnamon) and mineral (rock taste) interplay to deliver the classic rougui experience. 

This tea has excellent calming energy, no bitterness, and lovely thickness. The flavor is clear, clean but well balanced. This makes a great introduction to rougui, but is also very satisfying for the high roast yancha connoisseur. The taste of the tea itself is what is dominant here, not roast, even when brewing at high ratio in a gaiwan! This is just great tea all around.
