I am drinking this Western style in an infuser basket this morning, which I know is not optimal. Approximately 2g for a 10 oz. mug of tea.

Steep #1: about 3 minutes due to the leaf/water ratio. The tea has a very nice roasted smell and the tea liquor is a medium yellow kind of color. It’s a bit peachy and flowery, with a nice sweet aftertaste.

Steep #2: I tried for another 3 minutes but with less water this time (6 ounces?) The tea does seem more golden (as in yellow) than some other teas I’ve had from this region. Second steep is a bit weaker in flavor than the first, coming up slightly nutty.

I feel like I can’t really rate this properly until I try using the gong fu method at least once, although the sample size was only 4 grams to begin with. Right now I will have to say it is pleasant but I’m not too blown away by it.

First steep: Lightly vegetal, minerally, and has some natural sweetness, no sugar needed (for me at least.)

Second steep: I’m picking up floral (almost jasminey) and somewhat nutty notes. Very good oolong.
