description

The estate of Donyi Polo is fairly new and lies to the farthest corner of the country in the highlands of Arunachal. It makes limited batches of exceptional teas like this first flush oolong. A light, smooth liquor that is delightful with layered delicate notes and a creamy texture. The honeyed sweetness and rounded character of the liquor is remarkably similar to the famed Taiwanese oolong. Floral fragrances come by in the middle extending its richness and depth. The sweetness of the cup lingers on as you mull over its nuances. Steep the leaves again to enjoy more greener less floral characters.

aroma:
Light vegetal with vibrant buttery, milky notes and sweet fragrance of honeysuckle
appearance:
Pale yellow
taste:
The liquor is light-bodied, delightfully smooth, sweet and well-balanced. It starts out with delicate vegetal and herbal notes similar to asparagus, broccoli which subside gradually to reveal a heart beaming with delicious buttery, milky characters, rendering a very nice, enjoyable, creamy mouthfeel. Fleeting floral nuances; redolent of honeysuckle can be perceived around the edges and the back; adding a layer of depth and richness to the cup. A mild sweetness lingers on in the aftertaste. The second steep recommended at 4 mins brings about a more greener, deeper, less floral character and is equally enjoyable.
COMPLEMENTS:
Best enjoyed on its own or with honey based desserts, like a honey panna cotta
