From Hilo Coffee Mill

Hawaii’s FIRST Oolong tea, grown with plenty of aloha and TLC. This tea is grown in the lush rainforest surrounding Volcanoes National Park. The Camellia Senensis plants are about 6 years old and only approximately 100 pounds per year is produced for sale. Every careful piece of the processing is done by hand. This 1st flush oolong tea has a whiffing sweet aroma, bright and clear liquor and a delicate floral and fruity flavor. A very rare Oolong Tea.

I’ve been given a sample of this tea as part of a tea swap.

Dry leaves: strong tart/fruity aroma.
Infused 2 grams of leaves in a 50mL yixing pot with 190°F/88°C water for 30 seconds. The tea is fruity, sweet, like ripe plums.
A second infusion for 30 seconds brings out a little spiciness in addition to the rich fruit.
3rd infusion at 60 seconds is still strongly, deeply, fruity.
4th infusion at 120 seconds is sweet, fruity, not much tart left.
5th infusion at 4 minutes is losing strength, a little sweet, a little fruity, warm and friendly, but not strong like the earlier infusions.
6th infusion at 10 minutes (just couldn’t let it go) is still pleasant, mildly plummy, sweet, but again rather dilute.

I think I may actually buy a little of this for a treat. It doesn’t have the legs of a great Dan Cong, but the fruit up front is pretty incredible. Even the aroma of the wet leaves after the infusions are over is still quite nice.
