From Yuuki-cha

Origin: Gokase Town, Nishiusuki District, Miyazaki, Kyushu, Japan
Organic Certification(s): JAS
Harvest Date: Autumn 2013
Cultivar(s): 100% Kanayamidori

From Gokase Town in Miyazaki Prefecture comes this highly oxidized non-roasted Japanese tea which we refer to as “Oolong-Black Tea” because it has some elements of both Oolong Tea & Black Tea. It’s made from incredibly rare handpicked buds and the top two leaves that were selected from Kanayamidori tea bushes in autumn.

We favor this one brewed in a gaiwan as this concentrated brewing style offers more of the character of the tea than when brewed in a kyusu. Prepared in a gaiwan, this tea reveals an orange tea liquor that has a texture and sweetness that combines to make a nice creamy thick sweet taste with a lasting impression in the mouth without any strong bitterness like a nice black tea, and on the other hand presents some nice fragrant notes like a nice oolong tea.

Today i opened up a bag of wonder. Also known as tea. :)
This tea caught my interest since its highly oxidized yet not roasted. Oolong-black :)

First inpression was how large the leaf is. The 30g filled a bag larger than most 100g teas comes in.
I have no idea of how to brew a tea like this, i thought i´d start out western style.

Kobiwako pot.
1m/2m @ 100C

The liquid is light amber, golden. heavy scent of fruit, apricot.
First cup taste very much of apricot to me. Slight nuttiness, clean and even body without astringancy. There is a special taste on the aftertaste, almost like a hint of smokiness?
Second cup slightly stronger body and flavour.
This is very much a tea to my tastes, none of that buttery nuttyness of lowoxidized oolong but still very fruity since it hasnt been rosted. Wonderful!
