I know why this is one of their most expensive teas. Of all the straight oolongs I’ve ever had, this is a solid second place, and definitely worth the money – I’m just too cheap to buy it except by the cup. I made a few cups of this tonight, and I love how the character of the tea changes with every steep. A nice light, smooth oolong, buttery on the tongue with a faint floral note that doesn’t get stronger or overwhelming with more steeps.

Started at three minutes, then thirty seconds longer for each steep, and tried to get the water around 90C, which is a little cooler than usual for oolongs but I know I can’t stand mine scorched.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
