From Silk Road Teas

Perhaps our sweetest tasting Oolong! Grown at the highest elevations of the Phoenix Mountains in the Feng Huang area of Guangdong Province, once harvested, the leaves are artistically shaped by a tea master we know well, then wood charcoal fired in wicker baskets to create a distinctive red-green leaf with a fruity and roasty aroma. This small, terraced tea farm harvests from Oolong bushes and trees that are, in cases, hundreds of years old. Its sweetness is nuanced with a long, pleasant aftertaste. Offers multiple steeps. Brew in water temperature 195-205 degrees F for 2 minutes.

I haven’t had this one in a while but thought I’d check it out again this morning, ooh, I love this one. Sweet and mild with a floral aroma and light fruity flavors. See previous notes for more info. I hope they still have this at Whole Foods for a while. :)

I got 4 very good steeps out of it.

This is a very high quality bouquet-style Dancong oolong. Some times I will brew this tea perfectly and it gives me the chills. The second infusion is always a little better balanced than the first, but the fourth infusion is the prime of this tea.

The infusion yields an amber and gold liquor, the aroma is woodsy and nutty and the taste is creamy like honey and butter, yet also pleasantly minerally with an allusion to tasteful astringencies.

I would highly recommend this bouquet style dancong oolong

I like this tea, although it’s fairly mild. It has a little bit of the juicy floral flavor I like the best in oolongs of this type, without getting bitter or astringent. It has a lovely sweetness without being cloying. On the other hand, it’s not quite as flavorful as others of its ilk that I like very much. I get four steepings at 195 with out 3-4g in a medium gaiwan from it.
