I ended up picking up some of this tea cuz it was 30% off, and am pleasantly surprised! It’s not an in your face kind of tea…mild and honeyish, it reminds me of golden tip Dian hong tea. Of course nowhere near the complexity of my remaining Golden Fleece, but also a tea I don’t have to ponder over, which is a nice change! I’d say that there is at least 6 oz in the tin, so ill have this for a while!

Brewed western style, 1 heaping teaspoon for 8oz water, steeped 2.5 mins. Will be trying resteeps soon, lets see how it holds up, and if there are any changes in character!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 45 sec

Bio

While I have always liked tea, I have recently fallen off the deep end into loose tea madness :)

I have found that I prefer the darker spectrum of oolong teas like da hong pao, Shui Xian, dark roasted and/or aged TGY, and also Dancong’s. Pretty much anything but floral oolongs, they just arent my style. I also enjoy pretty much every black tea that I have tried! I am also getting more familiar with puer tea, and lately have been preferring shu over sheng…Good for the stomach, and the most likely way to find myself “tea drunk!”
