8 Tasting Notes
I bought a box a couple weeks ago and have had a few cups this week. It’s a good, solid, and straightforward jasmine, though not particularly complex.
A robust oolong with nutty, earthy flavors and not a hint of sweetness. It has a buttery feel and lingers on your tongue. I haven’t had many premium oolongs; this is really a different world from the cheap stuff. Drank this gongfu style out of a yixing pot.
We slightly oversteeped the first pour (at about 4m), but subsequent steepings were 3m, 3m, 4m. The complete lack of typical oolong bitterness stood out to me. To me, this is a very unique tea!
A warm, spicy tea that would be great for cold weather. I drank unsweetened and without milk, but imagine this would stand up very well to cream.
I had a couple cups of this nice bright green tea this morning to combat a winter cold.
