Being still new to tea, this reminded me of a Formosa of sorts but that’s just me. It’s more according to the site a cross between a anxi tieguanyin and a green baozhong, which explains why I loved it. The leaves are full and large. The soup is light, getting deeper with each infusion and this tea is a long hauler for a light Oolong. It’s very floral and fresh, smooth on the creamy side, yet dry, if that makes any sense. Slight astringency but steeps long (like when I forgot I was steeping it for 5 minutes) with no bitterness. There are notes of flowers along with a greeny veg flavor as well. It’s balanced, refreshing. I’d drink this all day iced on a summer day. I started the steeps at around 30 seconds, increasing time with subsequent steeps. Aside from all this, I have enjoyed all the teas I’ve tried from Jeffery at UNYtea, a very new, young on line tea shop that I hope you will head over to and try his teas. I like supporting small business ventures.

I am a homemaker, amerature photographer and an ex smoker who is now Vaping. I also am an avid tea lover. I live in the DC area, not many tea places around other than Ten Ren but a few nice places like Teasim which is where I discovered loose leaf teas about 18 years ago. I fell out of tea and recently due to Instagram fell back into tea and am exploring new teas. I love all the colors of tea, no Lipton please though, but am just starting to explore Pureh tea. Any advise is appreciated. As I interact more with my teafriends on Instagram I"m more exposed to types of teas and good vendors and my collection is growing both of tea and teaware. Since joining here I’ve squired quite a bit so organization is a must. I’ll be filling out my cupboard here and get a move on with tasting notes and blogging. I’ve sorta joined here but forgot this wonderful sites’ use. Follow me, lets be tea friends, teach me I can learn.
