High Mountain awesome. Delicate, creamy and floral with a looooong hui gan of peaches and cream. All of the typical “greener style” oolong flavors are there but with an element of refinement as the wet leaf aroma comes through sweet and precise. The liquor is refreshingly bright and smooth that is balanced by a perfectly weighty mouthfeel and the tartness at the end unfurls slowly into the aforementioned sweet hui gan. High marks for this one.

I don’t know what a sweet hui gan is but I agree with everything else you said. I like way the flavor rolls around and the bursts of flavor end in that tartness as well.

hui gan (or huay gan) is the flavor of the air that returns from your throat after you have swallowed the tea. kind of like an aftertaste but it does not necessarily originate in the mouth. good teas have impressive hui gan. ive found that sometimes the flavor of the hui gan is reminiscent of the wet aroma of the tea. comes full circle, in a way.
