Super long leaves, had a hard time getting them into my sampling gaiwan. Soft gentle oolong tastes and aroma. This is not a fussy, precise oolong where you’re punished for even a 3 second over-steep, no bitterness noted. The leaves once brewed opened up into bright green, long, tangled, almost seaweed like strands. It held up to about 6 steeps in 130ml each steep. I didn’t get the citrus as the description but there is a soft peachiness. I passed on chewing a leaf as I am sampling other teas this morning. The Qi is also not as bright as described, but this was a sample and I definitely would have used more leaf for myself. This should be everybody’s introductory oolong, smooth and dainty.
