Tea Review: Ya Shi Xiang (Chaozhou Tea Grower)

Ya Shi Xiang
Chaozhou Tea Grower
Type: Oolong
Origin: China, Guangdong Province, Chaozhou
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf aroma is roasty, smoky, dark and savory with dried shiitake mushroom and wood notes.

The golden liquor has aroma notes of charcoal-like roasting, cinnamon, butter, and flowers with a savory undertone.  The taste is rich, buttery, nutty, and lightly smoky.

This oolong was flavorful throughout multiple infusions with the aroma changing notably following each infusion, reminding me of both dinner and dessert.  By the third infusion, the more savory elements had taken a step back and increasing the steeping time brought out better results.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
