Served Gong Fu style by Evan. Golden-green dry leaf is pleasingly aromatic.

I liked this tea very much. Predominately floral aroma, yet bold and complex, with skunky (which I liked) and herbaceous undertones. There's a faint soapy quality evident in each infusion, but it did not detract from the overall experience of the tea.

This tea remained remarkably consistent through many infusions. Both examples of Huang Jin Gui that I've tried from Life in Teacup seemed to change more in brewing. This may have been more reflective of Evan's skill in brewing showing, however, and not as much about the tea itself.

Very reasonable price too! This is one of the better examples of Huang Jin Gui that I've tried.
