Wow, this oolong is delicious! The first few steepings deliver a rich buttery taste and aroma that, like cheesecake, almost becomes difficult to continue drinking. After the first three steepings it mellows out into a nice sweet, relaxing drink. While this comes from Taiwan, it reminds me of a high quality green tieguanyin.

I highly recommend this tea, but I also recommend not to expect this to be a daily tea, but rather a special treat.

Sounds delicious. In my experience with the finest baozhong I get a strong cinnamon or brown sugar sweetness on the aroma of the wet leaf. Similar experience with this one?

Bio

I began my tea adventure when a counselor at Spanish camp introduced me to yerba mate. From there I soon started to embrace all different kinds of tea.

Currently my favorite tea is dragonwell, with silver needles being a close second. I really enjoy trying new teas and experimenting with different steep times and temperatures,
