Angel's Comment:

The key fragrance note: peach fruity aroma; the compound note is nectar fragrance, elegant and long-lasting.

This Hua Xiang Xiao Zhong is from Wuyi, Fujian. Unlike our smoked Lapsang Souchong, which has a smoky flavor, and wild Lapsang Souchong, which has a sweet caramel aroma, this tea is distinguished by its natural flowery and fruity fragrance.

 

Lightly sniff the dry tea; it has a light natural floral scent and a pleasant ripe fruit aroma that is modest yet long-lasting. Place the dry tea in a warm and moist tea set, gently shake it, and the scent is quickly stimulated: a flowery smell, like orchid or rose, coupled with a fruit and honey perfume, refreshing and pleasing. After brewing, the tea liquid is clear and amber in color. The initial sip is sweet and juicy, followed by flowery and fruity aromas that fill every corner of our mouth. The taste is rich and full-bodied, with several levels of flavors. It is also infusion-resistant. If you like Lapsang Souchong tea, this is a must-have one.

Origin

Xingcun Town has the greatest tea garden area in Wuyishan City and the most rock oolong kinds in Wuyi. It is regarded as the "birthplace of black tea in the world". Currently, up to 400 tea types have been found and grown in the township. For a long time, Xingcun Town has taken steps such as developing a scientific tea industry growth plan, establishing a standardized production base, and encouraging the integration of tea and tourism, causing the tea aroma to drift out of the world. It was also named the "Fujian Tea Producing Star Township" by Fujian Province.

Tea Bush

Small-leaf tea species is a kind of short, small plant with thin branches, and reproduces sexually. It has more palisade tissue and a higher total amount of carotene and lutein. These terpene derivatives can be decomposed into aroma substances such as β-ionone and teaspirenone, so most teas made from small-leaf tea are very perfume and features of high freshness.
