2016 Winter Alishan High Mountain
Just arrived today! (12/6) The rinsed leaves of this Alishan have a smell of both sweet flower and young fruit with a citrus-like high note sneaking into the nostril. I am impressed with the smoothiness of the broth. I haven't been able to taste a buttery Alishan for some years. I will describe this Alishan buttery. The flavor of this Alishan already shows up in the cup. I am excited to see how this tea will open up. I will be updating its tasting notes.
Tasting note update (1/17/2017): This is a very solid Alishan. The taste is sweet flower and the liquid is very smooth. At the second infusion, the strong floral and citrus aftertaste opens up, and by the third infusion, you will be delighted by the buttery texture.
