Drinking this today out of a beaten up chipped and stained infuser mug I got in Chinatown – lmao! Looks like I might need a new mug very soon. :)
When I think of a classic high mountain oolong something like this would come to mind.The dry leaf smells a bit floral and a bit like licorice in the bag.
This was steeped for around 2 minutes at 180 F. I got a sweet, mildly buttery and rich tea which is very soothing. It has a nice floral aroma as well.
I steeped it again and the second steep was much like the first. I am enjoying it and would consider ordering it again if I ever place another order with Tea from Taiwan. Still nothing about it really stands out among the other oolongs I have tried from the same company. In a way I will be kind of glad when these samples are all gone and I can move on to something else. :))
