Let's warm our hands upon the hot air of the brazier and sit down for Jookro's yellow tea...
As we sip in silence the flavor of this tea speaks to us. It has a sweet, full bodied citrus taste with a juicy mouthfeel and subtle long nutty aftertaste. It's like biting into a sweet lime with sweet and sour in perfect balance, walking together hand in hand. It's taste is also deliciously chocolately, the bitter dark chocolate one is quite fond of.
The chaqi in this tea is warming and sunny, it is mostly felt in the upper torso, the heart, and in the lungs. This teas energy is the uplifting type as its energy ascends.
The mouthfeel of this tea is less pronounced it lacks any throatiness as it doesn't seem to travel past the back of the throat, but what is in the throat feels quite natural. Astringency comes quite late with this quality tea, only later infusions dry the roof of the mouth.
With later infusions also comes the typical nutty-roasted taste that seems to characterize Korean yellow teas. What's really nice about this tea is that the flavour really evolves through infusions and the stamina of the leaves allows it to go though many, a tell tale sign of a good tea.
