oh yummy – this is one of my first darjeelings ever, and i am loving the texture – so much less green and leafy than oolongs, more wood and spice. this isn’t really oolong-y in my mind, but i also haven’t derjeeling’d long enough to tell you if it’s more darjeeling than oolong. it’s a whole new thing, to me. quite enjoying multiple infusions all morning long!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 3 OZ / 100 ML

smooth, mellow, honey, those are all apt descriptors. i was expecting a little more of what i think of as oolong-ness, not sure how to describe that, but it doesn’t necessarily include “mellow” or “honey.” LOL! that said, this definitely is a great tea, i am quite enjoying it, but am going to have to put notes on the label so i remember NOT to pull this one out when i’m craving a good ol’ fujian oolong. pull this one out for mellow, smooth, golden honey goodness. sure is good for that.

Steepster, lovely steepster sent this to me, i’m quite enjoying it Kung Fu style, here in my living room while working away at worky work. ugh. work. i don’t have time to write more other than this stuff is tasty – and i keep accidentally brewing it too long by about 1-3 minutes per steep, since i keep getting interrupted, and that doesn’t seem to affect the tea negatively AT ALL. none of that nasty weird overbrewed oolong flavor, y’know?

k, back to work.

finishing up my last clump of this – some good stuff. once again, washed 2x, as first wash barely seemed to take any of the tea with it. 2nd steeping now, same procedure as before (glass gaiwan, just before boiling, 15 secs, plus 10 each new steep) and still enjoying. debating whether to get more or just try another one.

These bricks always benefit with about 2 years aging to allow them to settle a bit. They do steep for it seems like forever these little nuggets.
