Good day ladies and gentlemen, it been a bit quiet in my direction since I have been making a room for this years teas. I already have ordered some 2015 Organic Longjing. I hope they will soon start sending them. Also a while ago I started blogging in my own language, it’s been so fun that now I consider making one in english. Regardless my crappy english.
My oolong tastings continue. I have been trying three different TGYs and I have been ordering some oxidised oolongs. I start slowly with them, but I’ve heard they are gloorious.
Today is Bai Mu Dan Tie Guan Yins turn, whew what a name. It’s winter TGY and harvest is October 2014. Not that old (half a year x) ). I really like the packing, vacuum packed oolong inside this green and white little box.
I used gongfu method and Wan Lings recommendation with time 30s-30s-40s-50s-70s-90s-120s.
Leaf nuggets are smaller than usuan, maybe because it’s a winter harvest. They’ve nice vegetal scent with mild orchid fragrance and light to deep green colouring.
Liquid is pale greenish yellow with really mild buttery-orchid aroma.
Flavour is also bit weaker than what I’m used to drink, it’s really fresh though. Quite dry feeling despite butterness. Flavour is short, it does not linger in your mouth it just dries it and goes away. Bit sweet.
Wet leaves are dark green, they’ve strong orchid scent. They are really small and bit broken they look almost like green tea leaves with their size.
The flavour gets stronger with every steeping, especially orchid taste. I likes the most steeps after the third one. Quite nice tea overall.
Flavors: Astringent, Butter, Drying, Orchid, Sweet, Vegetal
