Wow. This is a wonderful tea. I brewed it much cooler and I put in 3 teaspoons for two cups (leaning towards gong fu style). The dry leaves are only brown and have little smell. The wet leaves are brown and green, with some nice dark greens in the middle, and smell strongly of peaches.

Round one is light and airy, and very, very fruity. I taste peaches in that little cup.

Round two has a darker liquor, despite a shorter brew time (30 sec). Still peachy, though slightly less so, with that slight sesame taste I associate with oolongs. It’s all about the aftertaste.

Round three was a bit less exciting, but still great. Also 30 sec. Little peach, but a nice, complete oolong. It tasted of roasted sesame.
