This is an spring oolong. Precise production, very good quality leafs, very light oxidation (about 10-15%), nice green color and fresh smell.
I’m kind of surprised by the quality. Didn’t expect that for such a price. Usually you can get a Tie Guan Jin of such quality for about 2-3x this price.
I love lightly oxidized oolongs. They have a very light aroma with a nice flowery guidance.
I’m steeping it for about 1:30 minutes and the 5-6th steeping for about 2-3 minutes. The liquor has a bright brownish color, very pure and smell nice flowery. You can get some more aroma via gong fu cha, but it’s also fine using a “normal” method.
This is a very light tea, really reflects spring. Can be drunk all day long (also because you can steep it like 6-7 times). I don’t really like jasmine teas or any other teas with additional aromas. In this case the flowery armoa is created during the oxidation process, which is really beautiful.
A very good tea for a very good price, what else does a tealover need? Well, i wish they had it on stock, unfortunately it’s sold out :
