Rou Gui - Gold Medal
Strong fragrance balanced by the clean charcoal roast. The lid of the gaiwan smells sweet while the thick soup clings to the throat. This tea can really take the heat; reboil the water between infusions.
The name "Gold Medal Rou Gui" is new for our shop. This tea was produced by my uncle who produced the 2017 Rou Gui that I loved so much. This year he felt lucky and entered it in a local competition. He took home the gold medal and has since sold the whole batch, but did save a small amount for us.
