Time for Tea Please?
Today I’m sipping on Bai Ya Qi Lan 2015 which Is a oolong tea from Wan Ling Tea House. This particular oolong tea is a southern Fujian one which has been baked for a fuller flavour.
On opening the tea pouch the tea is very intense in its aroma. I can’t really pin point an exact flavour other than it being a comparison close to a strong black tea.
The tea itself is quite unusual in its look with it being almost pellet like. Just like some shrivelled up grapes.
As soon as the water hits the tea, goodbye pellets hello leaves.
The brewing aroma is completely different to that of its dry state. The aroma still packs a powerful punch but it’s almost toastie in its smell.
The brewed liquid is light brown with a yellow tinge too it.
Like its smell it’s hard to compare it to anything. Which isn’t a bad thing at all. The taste sensation to me is a of a smokey roasted type tea. With some light honey tones. Like I said about its smell almost like a toastie burnt flavour. It actually tastes very close to how it smells. Which not many teas actual can pull off.
Another point worth mentioning in this tea tastes the same throughout. With some teas teas get stringer or lose their flavour but with this tea it is consistent without.
