Dry Leaf Honey sweet, orchid and fruity(candy like).
Wet Leaf Plummy, fruity, floral, Orchid floral, honey, fresh.

Gong fu in Yixing Gaiwan 6oz/6-7g

1st-2secs Clean and sweet with very subtle orchid floral notes. The sweetness is honey like and lasting. The liquor is very refreshing and clean, as it washes down the aftertaste is sweet and very subtle floral.

2nd-4secs Clean and VERY sweet with subtle floral notes. Honey sweetness is very present with a slight fruity hint. This Oolong has a refreshing character that is very note worthy. Its aftertaste is sweet and subtle with floral notes.

3rd-6secs Sweeter and slightly less clean, with some floral hints being present in the front. This floral sweetness lasts as it washes down and becomes refreshing and through the aftertaste that is still very sweet and slightly floral.

4th-10secs Sweet with orchid floral notes that wears the slightest bitterness that fades quickly into sweetness. As it washes down it remains sweet and refreshing; there a faint herbaceous note that is pleasant. The aftertaste is sweet with subtle floral notes.

5th-15secs Very sweet with orchid floral notes and slight fruity hints. The taste becomes slightly floral and then fades into sweetness. The aftertaste remains unchanged.

6th-20secs Slightly less sweet that previously. The liquor still has subtle floral and fruity notes that lingers very subtly as you continue to drink. As it washes down it becomes sweet and the aftertaste is sweet and slightly more floral.

Final Notes:
This Oolong is very good, it is very sweet and takes several infussions well. The thing is that is very subtle and after having tried the ‘Ba Xian’ Oolong this one will remain in its shadow for me. But it is still a great Oolong that is easy to enjoy if you are looking for simple sweetness and enjoyable is you like the challenge of subtle complexity. EDIT going through all my Oolongs I felt I didn’t do this Oolong justice Bumping up its score!

I so want to try some of the teas from this collection! I am a bit intimidated about ordering though. When I have enough funds to make a worthy order I plan to contact him.

JC

Oh you should. And he’s currently doing sample sizes too, specially for more expensive teas. I got a few Oolongs and Puerh in sample size. So far loved them, Now I know I like them all that is needed is gather the funds to get them. lol

Azzrian

Is this the Site that David Hoffman runs? I just wanted to be sure we are talking about the same thing lol but I had no idea he was doing samples!!! Yikes I need to pick out some things!

JC

He is currently running www.thephoenixcollecion.com You can’t order online yet and the site is still undergoing some changes so I know is a bit rough. I’d recommend just calling and telling him your interest, he likes to interact with people and in my opinion is very attentive. He recently started with the samples -“I don’t believe is fair for people to have to pay for an expensive puerh cake or tea that they haven’t really tried” is what he said. Go for it.

Sounds like a good guy!

JC

He really seems to be. If I’m ever in the California area I’m definitely visiting! I respect and admire knowledge, but not as much as I do humbleness. :)
