[March 17 Tea of the Day 3/3] Deep roasting can destroy a tea if it's not done properly - the flavours can get obscured by the roasted notes. But the Jin Mu Dan is an oolong that has been roasted properly. It feels dry, but not astringent on the throat. The sweetness of this tea is best brought out at high temperatures (95°C). Sweet, menthol-like finish.

Preference noted with thanks! @pekoeandimp our very best to your upcoming tea events! *Eyes tuned to the beautiful tea log*
Our Yancha fix last weekend @mingcamellia, with some really floral Daphne Odora Yan Cha! We loved this lighter oxidized and roasted Wuyi Oolong, with a more delicate flavour! Chloe who runs Ming Camelia has a new batch of the same tea leaves produced by a different tea master which is more roasted, highly fragrant and tasted fruity. But we like the more delicate one better! Personal preference! That old batch is running out so go visit Ming Camelia soon!
Do you drink tea for fortune cookies or fortune cookies for tea?

Check out this beautiful set up by @pekoeandimp, also thanks for the shoutout. Have a beautiful Sunday everyone! ♀️ #teahugs
We enjoyed the floral notes of the Wuyi Mountains Daphne Odora Yancha from @mingcamellia very much! It's one of the lighter roasted Yanchas that we have drank and we thought the teapot by Korean Potter @seongil_hong brewed this perfectly! Hope everybody is having a good weekend
