A basic semi rolled oolong tea…I gave the tea a quick rinse and then steeped it for 1 minute the first time and multiple times after for slightly longer and at higher temperatures. It is a clean tasting tea with a good basic flavor, definitely a base tea that would be a good choice to make a mixture out of if you wanted to concoct your own brew, or a great tea for the purist all on its own.
One of the best wulongs I’ve drank this season.
Really harmonious, quite different from other Tie Guan Yins I’ve drank recently. Usually I find Tie Guan Yin quite imbalanced tea for my taste, the characteristic floral aroma is usually too strong and aggressive for my taste. This TGY is really well balanced, the aftertaste isn’t too heavy, floral-aroma is sitting peacefully in the background.
Jadepisara says the Gaude village is one of the most famous TGY producers, and I understand why. Too bad there isn’t a lot of this tea anymore.
I have mixed feelings about this tea. First steep had a nice, soothing, smooth taste. Presence was calm. Tea was really mild in taste. THe second brew, however, started to have more taste, and the taste it gave reminds me of Darjeeling teas. I don’t want my white pu’er taste like Indian black. Tea leaves get darker with every brew, and taste as well. Interesting phenomenon, although not very pleasant, I think.
First steep was nice, if only I could get that taste with later brews…
Lower temperature gives a dry, really unpleasant mouthfeel.
