From DeRen Tea

Harvest Year: 2011

Season: Spring

Source: Wu Feng, Hubei province, China

Grade: Superior

Product: 11mlh01

This jasmine oolong tea is based on a fine quality oolong tea. No artificial fragrance is used. This jasmine oolong is crafted by storing the dry oolong tea with real dry jasmine flower in wooden boxes. The whole process takes about 12 – 24 hours to finish depending on climate condition. During this time, the jasmine flower gradually releases its fragrance and the tea picks up the jasmine fragrance from the flowers.

Ugh, still sneezing, but better than before. And finishing up a sample, yay! I do have to remind myself that I want to save samples of most of my oolongs to try once I get a gaiwan or a gong-fu teapot.

I steeped this one at a slightly lower temp for a shorter time because last time it was a hint bitter. I might have over compensated, but the resulting brew is still a nice yellow and smells pretty strong. One thing I don’t think I got from the aroma last time is another floral hiding underneath the jasmine… it’s that oolongy floral, that green, fresh floral that green oolongs often have. This is plenty flavorful with these parameters, though it still mostly reminds me of a good jasmine green. I definitely still very much enjoy the cup!

I love my gaiwans, just sayin’ :)

Hope you feel better soon! Also hope you get to have fun trying out a gaiwan or itty-bitty pot. Especially with your oolong-love. What are you looking for in a gaiwan, by the way? I’ll keep my eye out for one.

Dinosara

Thanks! I actually haven’t looked at too many gaiwans so far because I am planning to get one in China! Gotta leave lots of room in my suitcase for teaware and tea. :D

Spoonvonstup

Oh yeah!! That is so true. When my husband and I were working in China, we realized that our salary would be worthless if we saved it and changed it back to USD… so we just turned it into tea and teawares! Definitely a good decision.

Roughage

We honeymooned in China and had to buy a new suitcase for the dinner service that my wife bought while we were out there. Divorce nearly ensued at that point! Now we love it though and laugh about me having to carry it all round China! I would love to go back, if only to stock up on puerh and teaware. I would make my wife carry it now though!!!! ;-)

Hope you are feeling better soon, Dinosara.

Thanks to Nicole, I can now try a jasmine oolong! A few months ago I thought a jasmine oolong would be interesting… and this one is! It has a lovely and fragrant jasmine & oolong scent and flavor. And I could taste it even before it was very cooled! Usually, I have to wait a bit to get any good flavor out of a jasmine or oolong tea. Both the jasmine and the oolong have a ton of flavor, so they are both pretty much evenly matched. One doesn’t over-power the other. Delicious! It’s exactly how I imagined a jasmine oolong! On my oolong flavor meter (one is light and floral, five is strongest), this oolong gets a three! It’s floral tasting, but there is something stronger there too.
