Morning Cup #38 – Keemun Needle

MorningCup Morning Cup #38   Keemun Needle

This morning’s cup is a Keemun Needle from PeLi Teas.

Keemun’s are great because of their chocolatey textures and unique flavorful brews. This tea is no different, and I’ve come to expect such quality from PeLi Teasproducts. Even those in bags and/or sachets.

The aroma is light, every so slightly insinuative of the astringency within. The flavor is also light, punctuated with chocolatey textures and a nicely elongated tail.

Morning Cup #18 – Wuyi Rou Gui

MorningCup Morning Cup #18   Wuyi Rou Gui

This morning I’ve got a tea from PeLi Teas in my cup called Wuyi Rou Gui.

A nice light brew, this Wuyi Hou Gui offers a subtle aroma.

The flavor and body are interesting. A rocky Wuyi texture with a Tie Kuan Yin style body and flavor profile.
