On my first steep of this. Finally found an oolong I really enjoy. It’s like the laid back little sister of Laoshan Black. I can’t wait to see what the next few infusions bring. Definite re-order!
ETA: So I did a few more steeps of this and this crazy sweet honey flavor came out in the last steep. But there wasn’t much other flavor. Just a sweet flavor.
I decided to make another cup, but let it steep forever and get all the flavors out in one cup. I’m not sure if that’s like sacrilegious or something, as the website says to not steep for more than a minute, but it just sounded right to me. And man was it! I let it go until all the leaves were totally uncurled. And it tastes like creamy sweet chocolate pudding. Not a hint of bitterness or astringency. Just creamy. And sweet. And chocolatey. This is the only way I will be making it from here on out. Yum.
One more add — After looking at the verdant website again, I realized I prefer brewing this Jingshan Style. I love finding new teas that make me giddy. This is definitely one of them.
