Tea Review: Hot Brandy (White2Tea)

Hot Brandy (2020)
Type: White, Black
Origin: India, Nilgiri
Product Description:
A blend of both white and black tea experiment gone horribly right, this is the latest version of our sold out 2016 Hot Brandy.
The soup is thick, smooth, and fragrant. It fares well with both gongfu style and western style brewing. The tea has excellent endurance and can steep for a very long time and can even withstand being simmered or boiled without becoming acrid.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf aroma is lightly woody.

The golden liquor has a light aroma of apricots and wood.  The taste is sweet with notes of apricots, honey, and nuts and a long sweet honey-like finish.

The first two infusion were delightfully dessert-like with apricot and honey notes.  While the third infusion was mellower, it was still quite pleasant with notes of sweet and tart baked fruit.

This tea review was written in 2021. This tea was a gift from a third party.
