First time I’ve brewed this one in a while, and it’s so nice to come back to. So many teas, so little time. It has the fruity delicate flavor I associate with Yunnan greens, and in the first couple of infusions it does indeed do a good oolong impersonation, with hints of caramel and fresh summer hay. It definitely has a bit of a bitter edge if I am careless and let it go too long, especially in the later infusions. I think I’m going to try a bit of it brewed hotter next time, to see what happens when I treat it more ‘oolong-ish’.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea for 30 years, but only bought 2 brands of 2 different teas for most of that time. It took me almost 30 years to discover sencha, puerh, and green oolongs. Now I am making up for lost time.

I try to log most of my teas at least once, but then get lazy and stop recording, so # times logged should not be considered as a marker of how much a particular tea is drunk or enjoyed.
