Appearance/Taste: Can you say "smooooooooth?" This exquisite Rou Gui from San Yang Feng, the highest peak in the mineral-rich Wuyi rock mountains, is as smooth as a fine cognac on the finish. A spicy cinnamon note balanced with a bittersweet cacao and dark caramel finish, the soup is a beautiful deep burnt orange color that is crystal clear. Super clean, elegant flavor that lingers for a while and makes you salivate for more. Definitely a must have in your tea collection.
