This is a Tie Guanyin that doesn’t lend itself well to a gaiwan prep, which is odd considering MOST oolongs do. At four infusions between thirty and fifty seconds, the palate profile was pretty much the same – pear-like, slightly cottony, and leafy. While I liked it, there wasn’t anything that stood out beyond the first infusion (which was the best). If one were to have this, it works best as a one-shot for four minutes in 190F; the “A-MURR-ican” way for oolong prep.
