From Zhi Tea

Organic and Fair Trade. Arjuna, the name of a great warrior in Hindu mythology, the ‘Peerless Archer’, is the inspiration behind this one-of-a-kind tea. Visually stunning – hand-twisted into 1-2 inch ‘arrows’ of green, cinnamon-colored, and white leaf. The infusion releases a light gold liquor with a rich caramel body. Simply outstanding and luscious. Another phenomenal designer tea from Idulgashinna, a pioneer of organic tea gardens and world-class teas. Multiple infusions reveal a sophisticated depth of character. A really unique organic oolong tea.

Six steeps from this last pot. Smoke carried through and stone fruit notes popped in for steeps 3-5. Even then the leaves reained some shape! Zhi doesn’t have this available, which is fine by me. This was much like a museum exhibit; a couple times is quietly astounding and enough.

tea_for_one

but we do have the eagle nest! same estate. awesome tea.

Batrachoid

I found that out searching for this one. Not exactly the eye candy of Arjuna but it’s supposed to taste similar. Part of the infinately growing “To order later” list…

This Arjuna fellow may be a warrior, but beneath his armor he is an epicurean sensualist. The sweet scent and long, twisted leaves of the dry tea are striking and alluring. The spear-like leaves went 5 rounds, heroically keeping their twist through the first three. The smooth liquor evolved through luscious shades of caramel, from toasty to mild, with soft floral notes. As tea-drunkeness enveloped me, I stroked the hero’s back and squeezed his lovely brown buns! Arjuna now ranks in my top few oolongs. Thank you, Zhi Tea, for an unforgettable drinking experience.

I tried this tea the other day and let me say the dry leaves are so awesome! They are so long and tightly rolled, it was so fun to take them out of the bag. I’ve done 3 steeps of the tea so far, and finally the leaves have begun to unfurl. So far the tea doesn’t seem particularly fantastic to me, but we’ll see with a few more steepings.
