Bug bitten Qing Xin Da Mo processed like Oriental Beauty and finished into black tea gives amazing results. Beautiful looking leaves give amazing aromas in hot brewing vessel and after brewing, very warm and sweet, like fresh sugar glazed baked goods, with florals and dark honey.
Liquor is rich, sweet, smooth and thick, with fruity notes reminding me of muscat grapes, florals, moss and touch of malt, coming back with lovely and obvious aftertaste that lingers long after drinking.
Drinking this tea is very calming, relaxing and clearing mind. Whilst enjoying this tea I was wondering what words would best describe experience of drinking it, and for me it would be sophisticated, nuanced, luxurious and interesting.
Even after processing into black tea, leaves behave similar to Oriental Beauty and we recommend brewing it in 90°C, or even 80-85°C. This way it will produce many delicious and aromatic brews.
