Thank you Nuvola Teas for this free sample!

I decided to brew this tea in the Gongfu manner.

Leaf Quality:
The dried tea leaves smelled very floral. They had dark and light green as well as yellow sections, and were very delicate. The brewed leaves smelled wonderful. I detected roses, peach, and perhaps some cinnamon. This is one very floral tea! They unfurled, but the beautiful greens and yellows still sowed up. Perhaps I also smelled honeysuckle.

Brewed Tea:
The brewed tea had a bright greenish-yellow appearance, and was very sweet-smelling. The scent was almost as floral as the leaves themselves. The taste was wonderful too. A bit of vegital hints behind great floral qualities. The first brewing was very nice. Very pleasant.
Second Brew
This steeping was very floral as well. There was a light scent of pineapple. Aside from the new fruity scent, the cup was very consistent with the first, and was very tasty.
Third Brew
This was lighter than the previous cups. Nevertheless, it was still great. Those floral qualities pull through each steep. Silky smooth, and very sweet.
Fourth Brew
This brew showed more fruit notes, but the floral qualities were still present. It was much weaker than the third brew.

This is a very nice Oolong. I’m glad to have tried it.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
