From DarjeelingTeaXpress

This fine Goomtee first flush, technically classified by the garden as an oolong (due to light oxidation), displays the wonderful characteristics of the season! Cupping starts off with a very attractive infusion of small leaf-bud sets of greenish brown with copper highlights. The aroma hints of character. The cup has a clean green, fresh taste, nice mouth feel, then rolls over for a complex flowery finish. Even as it cools, the cup gives off an attractive lilac essence.

Finally, onto my only two first flush oolong teas.

The rolled leaves are a nice blend of deep earthy colors, with a not too flowery scent, more fresh than planty.

As with most oolongs, they steep quite beautifully, making me wish I had a pot that would showcase them as they brewed.

The liquor gives a brilliantly clear golden color, and a fresh floral aroma with a slight toasted finish. I love the scent of a good oolong, and this one does not disappoint.

The flavor is a very green and very fresh taste, very well balanced with little to no astringency. If there is astringency, it works perfectly with it’s floral finish, which is a nice surprise.

This is a surprisingly complex floral oolong, and one I really admire, strong, yet well rounded and very nice.
