Cultivar: Qingxin Dapang

Harvested by hand: June 2019

Origin: Hsin Chu, Taiwan

Process: Jassid bitten buds, medium to high oxidation, striped and roasted for a long time at a low temperature.

1. View

The leaves are a mix of small, large leaves and buds. The dark orange brew has a very good clarity and transparency. The leaves are part green, part red, reflecting a medium to high oxidation level.

2. Scents

The dry leaves smell like a mix of wood, roasted bread, ripe fruit and honey! The tea itself has the typical honey scent of Oriental Beauty in a very refined and subtle way. This 2019 batch has brighter, fruitier notes than the 2018 version.

3. Taste

The brew tastes very mellow, clean and with a long and pleasant aftertaste. The scents and taste are well balanced. It's not overpowered by one or the other.

Conclusion: This 2019 batch will taste even better after some time of aging, but it already tastes very mellow and enjoyable.
