Dong Fang Mei Ren is taiwanese wulong, and it is commonly sold in West by names such as “Grand Wulong” or “Imperial Wulong”. I’ve been unsure whether this is some kind of DFMR or not, as it looks like it could be but hasn’t really tasted like one. It was one of my favourite teas at Soihtu, but I haven’t drank this in a long time.

Today I tried this with a gongfu brewing, and compared it to Soihtus standard way of preparing it. And there it was, DFMRs characteristic taste! Not in a really fancy way, but recognizable.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 30 sec

Profile

Bio

Tea enthusiastic, and a one of founders of Uutos, Finnish company providing tea-consultation and organizing events. We tend to drink up our winnings.

Haven’t been posting much lately, been drinking teas mostly not found on internet stores and not bothering to log them. My tea drinking has also been shifting away from analytical tasting, and more towards feeling and experiencing, so I’m writing less notes. I do recognize both sides of tea drinking important for me, and I believe I will start logging more frequently again, maybe with spring teas.
