So this Longfengxia High Mountain Winter Oolong Lot 471 from 2015 was the first sample I opened up and enjoyed for many infusions. I really missed such great teas. The scent of the leaves is literally watering your mouth with such an intense green, fresh sweet and floral aromatic bouquet – it is just amazing how complex the world of tea could be. Taste-wise there is so much to praise about starting with steamed fresh Japanese softbread, almond cookies, a hint of coconut melting together with such a vanilla creaminess but with a subtle sour end to it. Everything develops such a fresh and clean environment like if you could actually taste the fresh air – the morning dew dripping from those juice intense green leaves. Within his profile there is also some green salad sharing his place with steaming edamame but also a slightly nutty flavor like almond with a hint of walnut to it. Sweet, Green, Fresh – next step Floral and Fruitiness. Here you can definitely taste the fine notes of lychee followed by a floral bouquet of osmanthus and a subtle touch of roses. Far in the last corner of the aftertaste you could possible taste a fine nuance of milk chocolate. This whole aroma stays persistent and long within your mouth while a warming tingling on your palatal and throat his teasing those regions of your tasting experience. Instead of losing some of the fragrance from one steeping to the next this fellow gets even stronger and stronger. This was definitely a warming tea which suits the winter season perfectly. Sharing this tea with friends and loved ones in front of a crackling fireplace would be the nicest scenery for such a wonderful oolong I could imagine.

I am a tea taster and tea-blog author from Vienna. Since my early Childhood days I was always drawn to East Asian culture especially China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. It wasn’t a thing I discovered because of my parents or my environment – it was a thing that started on its own and spread its antennas into nearly every direction what Asian culture could deliver.

I felt in love with their history, movies, Tv-Shows, food, Anime, Videogames, tea culture – nearly everything. 2009 was the first time I visited Japan – it was a feeling of finally being home. Since that time I developed such a passion for tea because tea combines so many aspects I love. Taking photos, writing, Asian culture, the connection to mother nature and its history, the love for craftsmanship (Teaware etc).

Within 2013 I started my teablog called ZeroZen(https://zeroteazen.wordpress.com/) – the first couple of years I only posted content in my mother language German. But within 2016 I discovered Instagram for myself and found the perfect medium for my artistic output which is now completely and exclusive in English ^___~
