“This is one of those teas that you have tried before.”
Opening the bag of one of the most popular oxidized teas (Hwang Cha) in Korea, one's sense of smell reminds one of this. These leaves are very fragrant. They emit a sour and sweet odour, white chocolate covered in natural notes of pines covering a mountain side. They give off a roasted smell indicative of the high level of oxidization that yellow teas undergo during their production.
Like a sunny day in the chilly fall.
Soon these days will be here.
Then, how appropriate will this tea be?
