At last I am finally tasting this famous tea, kind of Mariage Frères holy Grail for me.
This is an expensive tea and I didn’t want to go for a full 100g bag without tasting it. I requested a sample and they accepted. I even received a generous sample , large enough to serve 2 big mugs.
This is a low oxidation tea and a very green type of Oolong. With a name as Jade it seems quite logical.
The taste is much on the floral side rather than the biscuit side mentionned by MF. There is the typical buttery and creamy Oolong texture in this tea.
The biscuit comes more at the end of the sip for me, very light.
It reminds me a little Teguanyin green Oolong of Dammann Frères on some aspects.
I like it ,really, but now this is maybe not a tea I’ll buy to get on my cupboard. Happy to have had an opportunity to taste a sample before buying.
