High grade tea materials. Since the bud has golden hairs and young leaf is tight and like needle, also the tea soup fragrance is near lotus, this series got name"Golden Needle White Lotus". Light-medium fermentation.
Elegant and smiliar to lotus fragrance. Rich and smooth. Slight bitterness. Huigan comes well. Sweetness stays long in mouth. Refreshing and saliva producing is good.
Guangzhou dry and clean storage.
I started this one out with about 12 grams gave a good rinse and let it sit for 30 mins before brewing to re-hydrate.
To be as young as this shou no off aromas or “metallic” as some have being this young. Did a 8 second or so brew on this one. I poked around the leaf in the pot and there seems to be a fair amount of green leaf in this. Lightly fermented for sure. light on the palate, hints of oak, dates, raisins and a slight caramel to this one. Very reminiscent of another great shou from a local seller. Nice and velvety. Easy drinking and being enjoyed. Full 10 oz brew with the pot. I should gongfu this at a later date.
Flavors: Caramel, Dates, Oak, Raisins
