Prep: gongfu cha (gaiwan)
If you are new to oolong teas, I think this is a great introduction. Nice floral aromas, smooth finish with every steep increasing in flavor until around steep #4 where the flavor is packed with intensity.

A welcome addition to my short list of favorite oolongs on the malty, strong side. I have gradually learned to use my sense of smell and sight to judge if the tea has steeped according to my liking. I have stopped using time. This is a good recommendation by owner at tea shop. Good till 2nd steeping. The third cup already tastes bland.

This is one of the best tasting taiwan oolongs i have had and the best price also. It is similar to a good monkey picked with no astringent taste i brew gung fu method in yixing pots for many steeps. Highly recomend and the latest shipment fall 2011 ha sbeen one of the best.

A lovely tea and like many higher quality green teas the right temperature is crucial.
This is so that the flavour can be fully appreciated.
I find that the best temoerature to do this is 70 degrees Centigrade. The first infusion gives a floral taste along with a hint of nuttiness no vegetal taste like other green teas.
The second and third infusions I would brew at 80 degrees C as this brings out greater flavour and what flavours the floral notes are much more vivid and the taste of the floral notes linger.
The steeping times range from 3 minutes to 5 minutes for further infusions.
I would say this is a lovely tea and is deserving of attention to details such as temperature and steeping times to enjoy.

My first pu-erh! Made it in a gaiwan with a quarter of a cake, I’ve done 4 infusions so far and it’s still going strong.
It was just as I’ve always heard pu-erh- earthy. Though not as rich as I expected- it tasted lighter than many blacks I’ve had. Maybe I’ll try steeping it longer next time.
Regardless, deliciously unique. Not an everyday tea for me, but every once and a while, sure. I can’t wait to taste my green pu-erh from Dream About Tea!

love the reactions i get when saying the name to others. really really like the taste. love the fact that if i forget about it the flavor does not seem to ruin even if it get alot stronger >_< and i can reuse the leaf several times without it tasting just like plain hot water :)

D’une fraîcheur remarquablement désaltérante, ce thé vert du Jiangxi possède de belles feuilles éparses composées de nombreux bourgeons. Légèrement végétal, il possède un sucre naturel rappelant les pois verts tendres ou l’asperge fraîche ainsi qu’un aspect grillé réconfortant pouvant évoquer les marrons chauds ou le maïs rôti. Charmant, avec une belle persistance délicate, il comblera les amateurs de thés verts équilibrés.

Shou Mei is an above average white tea with a bit of a nutty flavor. But, a pleasant afternoon tea. I may try a hotter, shorter steep next time.

I prepared this as a cold-brewed iced tea, and it is really something else. Super refreshing.

drank Ginseng Oolong by Dream About Tea
14 tasting notes

I had this tea yesterday at work, my first day at Gold Fish Tea! A coworker said it was one of the shops most popular teas. I put 4 grams in a mug, added Oolong water, then waited 3 minutes for my first steep to darken up.

The appearance was very interesting. The picture on this article is accurate, however it also had some pure white dried ginsing root “coins” mingling with the tea.

I could really taste the Ginsing root. I have had the pleasure of growing useful herbs at home and one gets to know the “rooty” taste after a while. There are also a few pure Ginsing herbal teas out there that one might try. The tea has this aspect, but only SLIGHTLY. Not nearly enough to overpower the lightly oxidized oolong beneath. With any luck, some of the healthful benefits of the ginseng root are also being imparted into the already radiant cup.

Good news for Steepster! I have been commanded to drink at least one tea every time I work so that I can try them all. I will try to make a tasting note on each one to share the experience.
