1 Tasting Note
We had the privileged of trying this Tea last night via Tony at Chicago Tea Garden. Upon opening the tea was really excited by the sweet smell from the unbrewed leaves. I used my favorite Yixing pot to steep. Chicago Tea garden recommended 30sec steep time for the 1st and 2nd steeping. I did my 1st steeping for 1minute. The Zealong had a really nice pale yellow/greenish color. The smell of the brewed Zealong was still a pleasant sweet smell. 1st sip and I noticed that it had a much milder taste than a Dong Ding or Milk Oolong . Each cup still had a much milder taste.
Second steeping I steeped for 2.5 minutes and found it to be a bit bolder in taste and color was a tad bit darker and smell was still a sweet smell. Me personally, I like bolder tasting Oolongs better than the milder ones. This Oolong will be a perfect fit for those people who find the taste of most Oolongs a bit strong. If you are just becoming familiar with Oolongs this is a great start into a wonderful would of Teas!
