From Yunnan Sourcing

The high mountains of the Wu Liang range in Simao are home to some of the greatest teas in Yunnan. Perfect weather, high altitude and a pristine natural environment give this medium-light oxidized oolong a high level of fragrance as well as a stout thick and healthy leaf that can be brewed many times (much more than any Anxi oolong). This particular “High Mountain” oolong was hand-processed by a Taiwanese master who came to Yunnan more than decade ago in search of the best place to grow his high mountain oolongs.

Ah just my kind of oolong. It needs a lot of leaves and very hot water to express itself.
6g/110ml teapot. 35"/30"/45"/1’00/1’30/2’00/3’00
Awesome smell, awesome taste : flowery with a hint of lemon or acid fruit at the end. The taste lingers in the throat after drinking.
Definitely one of my favourite, a great Gao Shan Cha.

I got this tea again after a long time and was searching for steeping instructions. Was happy to find your tasting note because your steep times are on point!

6g / 90ml Celadon gaiwan.

Wash/20s/ +20s per steeping.

Very floral with some buttery flavour. I would say it was a and is a bit light. I´ve found that i do prefer theese lightly oxidized oolongs western style. I´m surprised of the high quality of this oolong. it reminds me alot of the fine alishan:s from taiwan. Very beutiful intact leaves when they unfurl. Gain “alot” in volume.
If you want a good high mountain oolong this is a nice budget choice!

Pretty yummy green oolong, very light and super floral, pretty similar to a green tieguanyin though missing good TGY’s great butteryness (instead it’s got a bit of a fuzzyish texture). It’s a LOT closer to the modern green end of the oolong spectrum than I was expecting from the pictures, I do enjoy the super green floral ones, but they’re not my favorite. It’s also impressively tightly rolled, the tiny little balls each unroll into whole intact bud systems with several large leaves and stems.

Every now and then I like to return to old favorites to see how my palette has changed. This was my very first YS purchase and my first foray into the world of high quality oolongs.

This Taiwanese style high mountain tea from Anxi remains a great jade oolong. It has a creamy orchid flavor and thick vegetal body with hints of vanilla. It’s probably the most vegetal oolong I’ve had in recent memory. It doesn’t take too kindly to long steeps and develops a strong seaweed like taste if oversteeped. The flavor of this tea seems to deteriorate much more quickly than others after the seal is broken and the tea is exposed to air. Compared to a real Taiwanese oolong, it’s more buttery and less sweet.

Overall a solid oolong that gives you great bang for your buck.

Rinsed leaves smell fantastic. Deep creamy Vanilla orchid aroma, and a hint of ‘cookies and cream’ of all things.
Taste is vegetal-orchid.
Nice dark large leaves take a while to expand.
