This tightly rolled Tieguanyin gives an enduring floral fragrance as if one has teleported into an orchid garden in early spring. The flowery aroma is not overpowering, but rather translucent and subtle.
After you take a few sips you will notice that your breath also becomes lightly floral. Then it ends on a mildly sweet note.
Aside from being floral, you will also notice a soft milky aroma. This softness strikes a perfect balance with the floral character.
