From t Leaf T

One of the finest oolongs in the world, from the Dong Ding region of Taiwan. The tender leaves and buds brew a pale golden green cup with a superb full-bodied flavour and lingering aftertaste.

num, num, num…another Miss Sweet Tea…this time an Oolong!
When I say Oooooooo….you say…???? (anybody!?) LOL

Anyhow…this is lovely! Let me get that out right away. It’s earthy-sweetness is tasty. It’s not too much on scent but I guess if I were to compare…I would say it has a slight fresh/sweet pea smell.

This is certainly screaming multiple infusions!

two more infusions…still very good! And it’s still going but I think I will switch teas for the afternoon! The more you infuse it the more it smells like the ‘woods’ with sweet grass type hints throughout! Good hot, cold, ‘luke-warm’, it seems hard to screw this up…under or over infused! YAY!

I love this kind of tea! Isn’t it delightful!

Lol! Anytime you refer to that song you’ll get an insta-like from me!

I had to stop after 4 infusions, I gave up on the tea before it gave up on me!

I used extra tea, and a short steep. I let the brew cool a bit before tasting. The medium body had a very smooth texture. The taste floral and sweet. No bitterness. Bumping the rating.

Just when I was getting bored of t leaf T teas, Tung Ting decided to be all totally awesome and make tea exciting again! I’ve been curious to try this tea for a while, its $35/100g and touted as “one of the finest oolongs in the world”. Watching the the leaves unfurl from these small rolled bits into massive leaves in my glass teapot was fascinating, it was as if they’d just rolled up an entire tea bush! The taste was buttery and herbacious, smooth and full-bodied. It reminded me of a less green gyokuro kabuse. This oolong is definitely worth the extra money if you’re oolong-inclined!

2nd steep, 6 mins: Slightly less astringent, still full of flavour
3rd steep, 7 mins: Almost sweet, reminds me of a silver needle white tea
4th steep, 8 mins: Has an underlying sharpness to it, like a second steeping of silver needle. Still packing a decent amount of flavour!
5th steep, 9 minutes: A mild cup now, I give up!
