Add to my notebook

Grown without pesticide around Lingtou village in northern Guangdong, this artisanal Yin Hua Xiang is of a rare gustative quality.

Its name translates to “honeysuckle fragrance”, a label easily understood once the leaves are steeped. Less oxidized and still greener than most roasted wulongs, theYin Hua Xiang carries a bright floral fragrance through its tasty aromas. Notes of honey, grains, almonds and apricots all blend in a rich and creamy texture, leaving behind a sweet and slightly dry finish. To steep and resteep many times.
