From DAVIDsTEA

From our reserve collection. To understand the majesty of this tea, imagine yourself on a bamboo raft floating down the river that runs between China’s Wuyi Mountains. They rise above you like a mysterious green dragon, surrounded by mist and cloud that make this oolong so perfect. Now taste the distinct earthy notes of orchid and peach. The leaves can be brewed multiple times. They will only become more perfect with each cup.

Dry tea is tightly rolled, small nuggets, dark olive green and khaki, and smells very fresh. At 190F, 3 gm in 3.5 oz pot. I poured water in, and then over the pot (which was seated in a small shallow bowl) to increase and maintain temperature, as in Chinese gongfu chadao. Steeps of 2 min, 30 sec, 1 min, 1, 1.5, 2 min.

On to the drinking! The maker of this oolong tea has coaxed a lovely sweetness from the leaf. It is accompanied by orchid notes and low astringency, a combination which spells happiness for me. There is a base of lightly roasty deep-greeness, characteristic of a rolled oolong. Successive steeps mellow the experience, as notes of caramel emerge. A most enjoyable series of cups!
