Tea Review: Ye Jian (Phoenix Tea)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 25

Ye Jian Wild Tips
Phoenix Tea
Type: Heicha
Origin: China, Hunan Province
Product Description: A bright, sweet and golden loose-leaf heicha, carrying honey aromas and delicious flavor across 7-8 infusions. We get great results using a little less leaf than we do with other teas, and slightly longer steeps.

Temperature: 202° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of dried wood and honey.

The dark golden infusion has a sweet, buttery, honey-like aroma and flavor with a sweet refreshing finish.

This tea's light and sweet aroma and flavor held out through three steepings and I would expect it to continue to provide at least a few more nice cups of tea.
