Like spring tea in winter, this batch is floral, light, and smooth with a crisp finish. The winter 2019 teas in general have very good aromatic qualities, and this one is no exception. Also available as part of the Baozhong Collection.
When I smelled the leaves of this batch my first thought was, â€śWow, this one smells like winter tea.â€ť Historically winter baozhong has a richer, creamier quality than the more flower-forward spring teas. Interestingly, the creaminess in this tea appears alongside a very well-developed floral aroma, leaving the finish sweet and clean. Overall, this batch behaves and tastes like a very high-end tea, exhibiting consistent delicacy that responds best to short infusions and sub-boiling water.
