I prefer oxidized Oolong , this is one, on paper.
The smell is very herbal , vegetable-y : a bunch of spinach . I do not smell too much roast .
Come on, Tie Guan Yin would magic operates? Pictured without special effects , this tea plays like a diamond …
The liquor smells spinach , too. And the wet leaf is a spinach leaf ! very very well imitated …
The liquor is a translucent pale yellow.
From my taste , oxidation is not the most obvious. This Tie Guan Yin remains much vegetable-y, not very creamy .
Much on the floral and unoxidized side IMO.
This is a good Tie Guan Yin but insufficiently creamy and oxidized to persuade me to buy it and store it in my permanent collection.
