very sweet and floral tea, with a nutty hint, subtle and slightly grassier than jun shan yin zhen
A good yellow tea itself being rare, the Meng Ding Huang Ya with its slightly steamy and subtly sweet flavour is a pure pleasure.
90°C and 1 minute proves to be a good basis for discovering the assets of this tea.
A little disappointing.
The grade of tea was not as good as I was hoping for.
Good grade Meng Ding Huang Ya should have very firm compact buds, but these were a slightly loose and ragged.
The caused the flavour to suffer too.
Normally this should have a beautiful nutty / buttery flavour, but this was only just evident and struggled to come through.
Still a very nice flavour, just not as good as I am used too
