Notes:

An opportunity to cup two different roast profiles of the same batch of tea from the same farmer. Chen has charcoal roasted the rare Ya Shi Xiang at 95°C for 8 hours to produce notes of apricot and butterscotch, a style preferred domestically; he also experimented with 100°C for 15 hours to bring out malt and honeycomb, a style preferred for export.
