Small, semi-beaded oolong. The dry leaves have a somewhat vegetal, slightly bitter aroma. They’re a pretty mix of light and dark greens.

Steeping #1 (1m @ 175F/79C)
The liquor is a very light hay-ish green, with a grassy, vegetal odor. (I don’t particularly care for it.) It’s a very classic tieguanyin flavor that seems to linger in the bridge of the nose.

Steeping #2 (45s @ 175F/79C)
Brighter yellow than before- the grassy is gone from the smell and it is now very much just vegetal with a new and very, very faint touch of floral.
The flavor is quite vegetal and somewhat more floral than many tieguanyins, but very strong on the vegetal.

Steeping #3 (45s @ 175F/79C)
Much greener liquor than before. The smell is more floral and less vegetal, now. I enjoy this steeping the most, as the planty flavor has backed off some, and it’s intriguingly sweet and floral. The leaves are about as open as they’ll get, and the flavor is barely there, so no #4.
