Add to my notebook

The expertise of Mr. Nen Yu is doubly honored here with this tasty cooking of Dong Ding.

The dark khaki leaves exhibit from their infusion intoxicating fragrances of berries (raspberry jam), honey and toast. Its liquor, rich and creamy, reveals a nice balance between its wooded and vegetal aspects.

This generous tea also features an exotic finish of pineapple and flowers.

Chi Ye Bai Ye

This dark wulong from Phoenix Mountains (Feng Huang) is a a very great example of balanced charcoal roasting: light chestnut aromas with a side of ripe fruits and a lingering flowery breath in the finish.

Qi Lan Xiang

Rolled into thin twists, true to the style of Guangdong, this wulong  has, however, been roasted only once (rather than twice) preserving its greenness and its distinctly floral aromatic bouquet.
