With the first sip, there is a prominent floral feature that floats over the palate, fresh and lively. The finish has more of the honey that is characteristic of these single trunk oolongs. The closest description we came up with is plumeria, with its sweet, deep but mellow aroma. This is not a perfumey (potpourri) type of fragrance. This unscented tea possesses the distinctive sweetness of tree oolongs but on top of this lies a plush aroma and taste that evoke plumeria.

The tea seems to really "bloom" once sipped, opening up and then ending with a rounder honey finish in the mouth. We found it curious that the flavor is fuller when the tea has cooled. One customer in the NE who has a very good palate said the tea fairly "blew her away" with its flavor.

These trees need pickers on ladders to pick the leaves. This batch was a vintage 2019 pre Qing Ming lot. Anyone with a gaiwan will find this an interesting experience, to follow the dynamic from infusion to infusion. Steep it any way you like — it is very forgiving. Or try it "kungfu" style in a small teapot using lots of leaf with a short steep many times. Water temperature is best just below boiling.
