Imperial Jasmine Pearls Zhi Lan - Fenghuang Oolong Tea Jiu Long Pao - Wuyi Oolong Tea Mei Zhan - Anxi Oolong Tea
Imperial Jasmine Pearls is a Spring harvest, 2016 green tea which has been hand-rolled into its distinctive pearl shape and naturally scented with fresh jasmine flowers. The base tea has been plucked to an extremely high standard and is comprised primarily of tender, young buds with the occasional bud and single leaf complex mixed in. When infused, the tea flavor is mild and sweet, which harmonizes perfectly with the balanced, not-overpowering aroma of fresh jasmine flowers.
This exceptional oolong tea is comprised of long, twisted deep greenish-black leaves with a tart, flowery aroma. When infused, it produces a beautifully clear light amber liquor with notes of tropical flowers and aromatic wood. The infusion is marked by vividly flowery and woody-sweet flavors against a mild but assertive bittersweet background with moderate astringency and a lingering orchidy-floral aftertaste.
The dry leaves are long, twisted and dark reddish-brown with olive green undertones and a mildly roasted aroma. The beautifully clear, reddish-amber infusion features a markedly fruity aroma that is best appreciated by using an aroma cup, but, if aroma cups are not available, be sure to at least enjoy the fragrance left behind on the lid of your gaiwan after decanting. The full-bodied liquor is rich, roasty, & woody-sweet with an impressive minarality and intense fruitiness in the long lasting finish.
This tea is comprised of reddish-brown, loosely ball rolled leaves with a mild, woody aroma. When infused, it produces a reddish amber liquor with the woody & plummy aromas common to moderately aged oolong tea. The medium bodied infusion has a nice fruit-tinged peaty/aged flavor that balances nicely against elements of aromatic wood and dried fruit. The finish is peaty & sweet with elements of dried plums and moist, sweet pipe tobacco.
