Tea Review: Joongjak Hwang Cha (Teas Unique)

Joongjak Hwang Cha 3rd Flush 
Teas Unique
Type: Yellow
Origin: South Korea, Mt. Jiri
Product Description: This Mt. Jiri Joongjak Hwang Cha (lightly oxidized Red Tea) was hand just before Ipha (beginning of the summer season) and is a flavorful, sweet and nutty Jaksul (hand picked artisan tea).

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a bold floral and aged wood aroma.

The copper-red infusion has a sweet, baked fruit, and green vine aroma.  The taste is sweet and mellow with a hint of baked fruit, snow peas, caramelized sugar and a long, sweet finish.

This was one of the more dessert-like teas I've enjoyed, being sweet and mellow throughout.  Two infusions seemed to be ideal.
