“Final Eco-Cha review. I’ve had such a great time reviewing teas from them, their teas are great and the people who are behind it are great. Special thanks to Nick for putting this all together.
The dry leaves smell pretty nutty and vegetal for a Taiwanese Oolong. The wet leaves are nutty and buttery smelling. This tea steeps out into a light yellow with a floral scent.
This tea is surprisingly thick-bodied, with a syrupy mouthfeel (god I hate that word) and very little sweetness, which is quite refreshing in a way. It’s nutty and floral in flavor, kind of reminding me of a dragonwell green tea crossed with an Alishan oolong. The aftertaste is perfumey, which makes this seem like a good candidate to make a Jasmine Oolong or Rose Oolong from. The nuttiness makes it seem like a good candidate for a traditional Dong Ding. IIRC this is actually a common cultivar for making Dong Ding with.
Since I still have a lot of this, I think I’m going to cold brew it, as per their suggestion.
thanks for reading, everyone!"
