4 Tasting Notes

Indeed… lowering the temperature produced a much better taste, which is deeper and more pleasant!

One of my favourite’s oolongs so far! A great combination of a great taste and a affordable price! You can find a better oolongs out there for sure.. but they will cost you a fortune actually! I find this tea to be great for “tea-beginners” – it opens the doors to the world of oolongs at a bargain price, a nice thing to start with.

Still it is considered to be not as good as Tie Guan Yin in terms of quality, but it has a great aroma and quite a deep and complex taste for it’s price. It can withstand multiple infusions (even up to 7-8) really well and moreover the aroma and taste fully develops with further infusions. If you need a good, let’s call it “everyday oolong” – that is the choice!

Tea can be called a quality one for sure… it has a soft taste of something woodsy indeed, with quite a pleasant aftertaste. The color is pale-yellow after the first stepping. Find it really pleasant during the summertime – it is quite a refreshing one.

Will go on experementing over the brewing approaches – i guess it is possible to get even more out of it! Will try to lower the temperature in future to get a better feeling out of the tea… for instance, such approach really boosted my Bai Hao Yinzhen and opened a new amazing level of taste in it.

Was really looking for a great “Milk” flavoured oolong, and supposed to get a good one from TeaSpring.com… unfortunately the Nai Xiang the shop is selling is not the best one out there.
Aroma is strong and interesting when you smell the dry leaves. However the scent is too simple and not that strong after the brewing – as if it is simply washed away. I have definately bought a better Nai Xiang from other sources!
