Thanks to Ellen for the sample. This is a uniquely fun oolong. Between the description from Zhi and watching the leaves slowly unfurl in my glass teapot, this tea is as much an epic as a drink. The flavors are surprisingly happy and fruity, peach and white grape dominate the first two steeps, then it thins and lets a buttery, lemony caramel become the primary taste. I could feel myself perk up with the first sip and unwind with the leaves and smokey caramel. Exactly what I needed on a day of perpetual gloom.
The complex and distinct flavors and shape make this a real work of art. I have to look up what else it’s artist has crafted.
