Bunch : Sparkling golden honey tea liqueur.

Properties: When brewing a cup, the tea color is like a yellow-orange jewel, oily and shiny. From the first infusion, the aroma of tea fills the air, and it seems that one can smell the faint smell of village smoke like the writings of Tao Yuanming. The tea infusion is rich in flavor, like a gentle embrace, full of sweetness and sustenance, as if jumping woody notes into the throat.
By the third brew, the orange tea is smoother, the sweet, honeyed flavor overflows into the mouth, and the guttural rhyme is more evident. By the fifth brew, the tea exhibits a brownish-yellow color, layers of flowers and fruits, and a honeyed aroma, with rich layers of taste and a lingering aftertaste.
After seven steeps, the color of the soup is still that of a jewel orange.
