One River Tea

Regular price $6.00 Sale

Master Wei’s Dawuye is hands-down one of the most complex Dawuye teas we have tried.  It brews darker than most of its kin in this style and the wet leaves have the distinct aromas of vanilla and tobacco.  The liquor is a clear gold and has a strong cinnamon fragrance.  Although this tea has been roasted less than Master Wei's other teas, the mouthfeel is still very smooth with only a hint of the pungent sweetness found in the Lin Family Dawuye Maocha.  This tea serves as an interesting counterpoint to the rest of Master Wei's teas, as it has been electrically roasted instead of charcoal roasted.  This distinction in the roast is less apparent than one might think at first; in fact, sometimes electrically roasting a tea can provide the producer more control to exactly express the desired taste in the final tea.
