More oxidized than the average Chinese Oolong. Fuller bodied, more akin to a 2nd flush darjeeling in aroma, taste, and body without the heavy muscatel and astringency.
Dry tea smells fruity and spicy, but not the true fruity papaya quality Taiwanese Oolongs often have. Tastes of delicate mango freshness with a spicy ginger undertone and a hint of lime zest. Well balanced. Fruity mango with slight gingery spice notes and a hint of lime zest.
Exceptional complex mixture of light tones, with a slight brisk and highly pleasant bitterness at the finish. Each sip leaves a pleasant mouth fullness, a coated feeling.
This is one of the best teas TeaHaus carries.
Needs to be brewed with a large amount of tea and small amount of water. This tea stands up to multiple brewing. The second infusion was as good as the first. I think it should be brewed with slightly under boiling water, such as pouring boiling water into your cup first and then into the teapot.
