Still steeping. This oolong thins out pretty well by the third steep, but is still drinkable. And the leaves look oh-so-nice.
I brewed the last 10 gram of this I had in a 6 oz session. The liquor that resulted is a vibrantly clear yellow-green, with a dense perfume of lilac blossom, hibiscus, and sesame oil. A bit of blue crab meat scents through. The mouthfeel isn’t as dense and juicy as I would like, but this is a nice light cup with lots of floral character.
This is the second time I’ve had sheng pu-erh and the second time I’ve brewed it myself. I’m sure my brewing expertise isn’t up to par for brewing pu-erh well. Nonetheless, this is an interesting cup. Golden raisins, mellow figs, and light cane sugars dominate the first steep. We’ll see where it goes from there.
Especially soft and perfumed, this oolong isn’t as juicy or sticky as I would hope, but its a delicate example of a greener twisted-leaf style.
