Aside from being a straight up amazingly warming tea experience, Aged Fu Zhuan is also a great dark tea for those looking to explore, but not wanting to stray too far from the familiar elements common in many dark teas. This Fu Zhuan warmed me up from the inside out, with familiar hints of light mushroom and dry bamboo at the beginning of the profile and hints of sweet freshness combined with some umami coming later on. The mouthfeel was elegant and full and I was pleasantly surprised to experience some lingering sweetness and freshness in my mouth long after the initial sips. Explore dark tea and try this sophisticated Aged Fu Zhuan!
