This Oolong consists of varied sized balls from roughly 4mm to 1mm in diameter. They are dark green with some brown and medium green in places with a few pieces having quite large stems still attached. A quick sniff-spection reveals a dry and perfumed floral scent.
The liquid once steeped is very light yellow. It has a sweet and floral flavour with a dry after taste. Very delicate but it does have a buttery element present though honestly it’s a little ruined by the overwhelming dryness. I don’t mind some dryness from an Oolong but this one feels like it leaves a powdery substance in my mouth after each sip.
Also as it cools the perfumed element becomes stronger as does the dryness which I didn’t think was possible.
I usually prefer Ali Shan to Li Shan and this was no exception. I had high hopes for this tea and while it was still a pleasant enough Oolong it just is not for me.
