Charcoal Roast Lao Cong (Old Bush) Shui Xian (碳焙老欉水仙)

I like it very much! I normally am very cautious about anything "charcoal roasted", because while it's supposed to be rich, warm throat feeling, sometimes it could bear hot, smokey flavor. I guess some people even like the smokey flavor and some tea is featured by it, but I would rather not have much of it.

This charcoal roast shui xian is very nice, not smokey at all, but very warm and soothing. It almost feels like a "throat massage" - well this isn't really accurate description... :-p

First infusion (haha, got shadows of my orchid and chestnut wall decor...)
