1. The view

The dry leaves have a light green/yellow color. They contain stems because they come from a young plantation that is organically farmed. The light yellow brew has a very good transparency. The open leaves show signs of oxidation on the edges, which means a more traditional processing. 

2. The scents

The dry scents of the leaves are very unusual. They contain notes of Provence herbs, spices, wood and flowers. The brew has a refined fragrances of metallic flowers turning progressively into peaches. There are also notes of wet soil near a river. 

3. The taste

The taste is clean and sweet. Its aftertaste has length thanks to a slight astringency that prolongs the sweetness. It coats the palate with pleasure!

Conclusion: 2 years ago, this farmer had turned his Rougui into red tea. This spring, he turned them into a very special Baozhong. There are so many fragrances that come to mind while tasting this tea!
