Description

This sweet and creamy Qi Lan delivers a wonderful after sweet with a refreshing mouthfeel. In the first infusion, I detected a hint of spiciness (gentle cinnamon/clove) that was pleasantly surprising. Futher infusions brought out sweet potato and toastiness with hints of cocoa which continued well into a 6th infusion. The after sweet always came on strong and gave this tea an incredibly refreshing aspect. The gaiwan lid had a unique dandelion aroma, not found in the tea, but also shared the cocoa toastiness that we both taste and smell from the leaf.
