ahhhhh. I decided to be super amazing and shovel the whole drive. Well, I got about 75% of it (the part where we walk and park anyways). It took about an hour and I have to say, I’m aching. I have a bit of a migraine from trying to do homework and staring at my screen all day. This tea is the perfect pick-me-up because it is my go to favorite oolong right now.
I’m currently on my 3rd infusion and this tea is still going very strong. For tasting notes please refer to older notes. Today I have to say that my two favorite unflavored teas are this and Hashiri Sencha. They are both perfect, complex, and just what the doctor ordered.
This second steep is getting its own review because it was so different!
This was a little under boiling for 1min.
The second steep reminds me of stones in summer for some strange reason. The texture is really evident in this tea. There is a great deal of mineral in this cup and it is followed by light fruitiness. It almost reminds me of the insides of grapes. This cup is also more green tasting than my past one.
Still a really unique tea and one that I’m looking forward to drinking again!
I love this oolong. There is something distinctly mineral in the flavoring that I find interesting. But the main attraction is this almost lychee-like flavor. It tastes more like lychee than artificially lychee teas I’ve had! This tea also seems to have more body than other oolongs that I’ve tried. There is a sweet, honey,and fruity juiciness to this tea that makes it one of my favorite oolongs.
Decent Jin Xuan that’s more mellow on the floral notes. There’s a definite creamy texture…a certain butteriness to the texture. It brews a beautiul darker golden brew that goes down easily. It’s not my favorite because I think it lacks some character, but it’s not bad. Think more creamy, less floral for a formosa oolong.
The first few sips remind me of broccoli and grass. A bit bold for an introduction! It’s much greener tasting than other milk oolongs I have had in the past. The sip fades into a smooth floral note — quite tasty! This finish reminds me a little bit of Life in Teacup’s Bai Ya Qi Lan oolong tea.. but not as light and fluffy.
Second infusion offers many more floral flavors. As I’ve mentioned before, I am terrible at identifying specific flowers.. but these are sweet and yummy!
I’m surprised to see this tea is a milk oolong because it really isn’t that creamy or milky to me. It’s unique and tasty, but wasn’t exactly the milky cup I wanted this evening.
This tea is refreshing, clean and sweet. It pairs perfectly with the pouring rain this afternoon. I need something bright! It’s very floral (I’m always terrible with identifying specific flowers) and more astringent than I expected. I wish there were more buttery notes.. in fact, I can’t really taste any in this cup. It’s nice, but there are other oolongs that are smoother and more enjoyable for me.
