From Tienxi

This tea is commonly called “high-mountain tea” by drinking consumers. This tea is produced at altitude ~1000 meters in Alinshan mountain area (one of the most toursit-attractive spots in Taiwan). Normally, the weather is cold and there canopy cloudy mists last every day in “High Mountain”. The average sunshine is also short. The tea leaves and buds are tender. The mesophyll is thick and pectin contents are high. Hence high-mountain teas have some characteristics, such as black-green appearance, sweet taste, refined aroma and enduring brewing etc. Since the quality for this tea is good, all the leaves were picked by hands. This tea is light roasted.

First visual impression: lots of big stems in this, but I appreciate that the tea is vacuum-sealed inside the tin.

After rinsing, I steeped for 30 seconds. It smelled pleasantly floral and fruity, like maybe pear, and the liquor was the color of pear juice. It has a very silky, creamy mouthfeel with no astringency.

The second infusion, I steeped for 50 seconds. The tightly compressed leaves finally opened here. This time the infusion was dark golden yellow, and I started to get a new aroma from the cup. It sounds pretentious, but the first things that popped in my head were honeysuckle and white grapes. This deeper infusion started to show a little bit of astringency that lightly coated my teeth, and I got a hint of toasted nuts. The floral scent that is so present in the steam was subtle in the actual taste.

Overall a really pleasant surprise for such an affordable oolong.
