The infusion has that wonderful floral ti kuan yin smell. It’s very light in color. The taste follows this nicely – it’s a very clean floral oolong taste with a depth created by a slightly savory undercurrent. There is definitely nothing out of place here…no sharp notes, weird aftertastes, or astringency. It leaves a nice feeling in your mouth, too – though how it feels is hard to describe. I could definitely drink several cups of this in one sitting. It reminds me a lot of TeaG’s Sumatra Barisian Oolong.

Second infusion (also for 30 seconds @ 90 C). I used less water this time to try to attain a stronger brew. The taste is very similar, but this infusion definitely has a stronger savory base and aftertaste. It’s delicious.
