Recent Tasting Notes
This Oolong was a surprise find for me. I originally walked into this shop thinking it was just a nature loving, vegetarian visiting shop. I was very surprised to find that this carnivore actually loved the wrap that I ordered, and was amazed to find a lovely little Oolong like this one being made in a steeping dump type pitcher, the type you set on the top of your cup and it dumps. Haven’t used these before, but it did afford me a wonderful front seat view as the leaves gently opened, awakened, and stretched back to life. I wish I could share the water temp, or volume . . . but I’m just not sure. I would say the dry leaves were around . . . 4gms.
The tea was very nice and toasted . . . not my way of steeping, preferring one of my Gaiwans or my little baby 50ml toasted Oolong Yixing . . . but so darned good, that 4oz’s made the trip home with me.
After steeping around 10 times . . . Observation of the leaves classified this as an ‘Alive’ tea. The leaves were whole and large, mostly green with some nicely toasted auburn leaves.
Will be steeping up and making some future updates on this tea . . . when I can introduce this lovely tea to my little tea toys.
