Yi Zhi MeiTea Varietal

This little-seen Wuyi oolong is rich, luscious and full bodied. The first aromatics are of rosewood and Chinese lacquered furniture with floral vanilla accents. As the tea steeps out, it builds a creaminess tempered by an almost earthy and sweet black sesame foundation. This continues to build up with juicy plum and yuzu, along with cooling sparkling notes in the aftertaste.
