Review of Keke Gul Te (Nr. 765)

7 of 104 of 54 of 572 of 100
Very GoodGoodGood Value

Half-litre pot at home, made from inch-long thin handrolled leaves - they look like tiny sticks. Pours clear light straw (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of tea (yellow, to be sure, but the scent is not very different from that of green or white), with a faint touch of peach. Delicate bitter flavour reminiscent of pure white tea, just with a touch of fermentation. Mild palate, low on tannin, with only little astringency and some smooth touches. Tastes good as is, but a small amount of sugar (a quarter of a teaspoonful) definitely does not do it any harm, either. This is my first pure yellow tea and the experience is quite positive. I am looking forward to tasting more specimens of the style. Not the cheapest pleasure but not very expensive, either and worth the money (55 DKK per 100 g).
