From Yunnan Sourcing

Autumn Tie Guan Yin from Gan De village in Anxi county was carefully picked and then roasted by hand over pine wood charcoal. The process is repeated many times until the tea has been heavily roasted and becomes almost black in color. The result is a highly aromatic tea that can be infused more than 10 times without losing much flavor. The tea soup is a bright red color and the taste is sweet and full with kind of chocolatey after-finish.

I had a Puerh heavy day yesterday including a really late session. Even got to ‘meet’ very nice people (Garret from Mandala Tea) and others. Today I started with some puerh but felt like having some Oolong.

I’ve already made tasting notes on this one so I just want to add something. I usually make this tea making 2-3(maybe 4) steeps. Then I use the remaining leaves to cold brew them over night. I love the taste of a roasty Oolong when cold, it is somehow refreshing and slightly filling at the same time.

Ohhhh I am so jealous of you meeting Garret!

JC

Nice guy. Passionate about tea. Bet that if you are around him the passion would stick.

Invader Zim

I’ve seen some of the conversations people have had with him, and he does seem like a really nice guy. I will have buy from him at some point.

Claire

Garret is so nice. I’m definitely ordering more from mandala when funds allow for it.

Invader Zim

The one conversation where Garret and JC hijacked the comments in your one tasting note Claire comes to mind!

Claire

That was pretty fun to come back to the PC and read! I turned off the computer to go make dinner, and afterwards Rayn and I watched a couple of Merlin episodes. When I came back my inbox was full of “_____ from Steepster commented on your review”.

JC

LOL, yep. That was fun.

This tea is easy to brew, provides multiple steeps, and has mild notes of honey and orchid. Everything you want from a dark roasted oolong in my opinion.
