Despite the in-depth description, the nuances of this tea were wasted on me. I like the tastes of the Wuyi Oolongs, but to me, it just doesn’t excite my palate or interest me in the way a good TGY oolong or Japanese green does. I know I am comparing apples and oranges…and I am voicing my lack of excitment for “oranges”. :) The only tastes I could glean were minerally, slightly buttery, but weak. I only did 2 steepings and decided I’d try something else.
