The dry leaves are medium-sized (somewhere between Li San sized leaves, and those of smaller oolongs) and tightly-curled, with that nice color mixture of forest and grass green.
Absentmindedly almost drank all of it just now before doing a proper note. It’s definitely a very pleasant sipping tea; very reminiscent of tiekuanyins that I’ve had. Not floral, but warm and smooth. The liquor is an orangeish gold, and has a fair bit of tiny leaf ‘crumbs’ that slipped through the strainer. (I don’t mind those at all, and they collected mostly only in the last cup) It has a smooth mouthfeel and is quite easy to just keep drinking, as it tastes and feels nice, but isn’t so magnificent a tea that I’d feel guilty for just drinking it while doing other things.
Overall very pleasant, but my mind isn’t really blown. I am, however, a fan of the more green and floral oolongs, and this one is just a pleasant, very lightly bakey oolong.

Ordered this after seeing a post on r/tea. Very good tea. I ordered the standard amount of 5.8 g and I received a lot more tea than I was expecting, which was a good surprise. The 1st steep had a nice floral flavor with a touch of what I’d call cinnamon. It held up for 5 steeps and likely could have gone a few more. I’m quite happy.
