I don’t always brew this perfectly, but when I do it’s simply amazing. It tastes very “complete”, like all the flavours are in balance. Loving this purchase so far, nothing to nit-pick. At first I felt a bit silly to splurge on this, but this will be another tea I’ll dread to use up.

May I ask you a stupid question? I say its stupid because I know that I could probably just look it up instead of ask, but since you have experience drinking this…what is the difference between an Oolong and a Wulong? I love my Oolongs but the description on the Ali Shan Mr. Chen describes it as a Wulong. Does it taste very similar to Oolongs? Thanks for the time.

Wulong and oolong are the same thing. According to wikipedia, wulong is just a more direct translation. I believe it is all pronounced the same way.

Don’t worry about asking questions. Many of us steepsteries are happy to answer them. :)

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

What my tea ratings mean:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

80-89: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
