5 Tasting Notes
The tea flavor is very clean and has the right balance of jasmine fragrance. The flavor lasts after 2-3 steepings. The quality of the leaves are evident, as they unfurl intact.
When first steeped, the jasmine fragrance is pungent, which I like. The leaves don’t look very high quality, as there are a lot of little pieces after they have been steeped. After about 3-4 steeps, the jasmine flavor is noticeably diminished.
Milky fragrance. Very delicious. The leaves look really beautiful after steeping.
I got this as part of Bird Pick’s Oolong Tea Sampler Set, which came with three other small tins of oolong. I like this tea. I am currently using it to stay up tonight because I couldn’t go to sleep and decided that better use of my time would be to do work (a.k.a. procrastination via writing about tea on the internet).
I’m new to tea tasting, so this rating may be because I’m inexperienced. I like the subtle flavor of the tea, a little buttery, but I don’t taste the apricot or anything else. I might have brewed it wrong. :/
