1 Tasting Note
I guess the sample I got was a much lighter roast than many of the other reviews, because the floral tone and sweetness were much more overt in my cup. I was not doing gongfu, but I did use fairly short steepings, and got a pale green infusion with a strong floral scent. The taste had a brief woody body that gave way to a very sweet taste and floral finish. Hotter water and longer infusions yielded a stronger, darker body (though certainly not the bitter woody taste some others have described). A solid light-oxidation oolong for casual drinking, though it seems Adagio is a bit inconsistent with this one.
