Leaves unfolded quickly, and were very full. Color is a green-gold. Aroma is slightly buttery, a bit nutty. Flavor however was very disapointing. Too earthy for an oolong. Something vegetal, but I can’t place it. Slight bitterness on only a 3 minute steep.

Preparation

I would try the gongfu or flash method of steeping. It tends to help me taste the true flavors of Oolong teas.
