Tea Review: Gui Fei (Phoenix Tea)

Gui Fei (Concubine)
Phoenix Tea
Type: Oolong
Origin: Vietnam
Product Description:  Not provided.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of sweet oats, flowers, and brown bread.

The golden infusion has a sweet aroma of oats, brown bread, baked fruit, and honey.  The taste is rich with floral and honey notes and a sweet, mellow, floral finish.

The flavor and aroma of this oolong remained full and rich throughout multiple infusions with the color deepening as the leaves unfurled.  It's worth lingering between infusions for that delightful floral finish.
