Excitement! A new oolong to taste. 3 gm tea, 2 min initial steep, 12 oz water 90 C. Dry leaf is dark green, tight half-snail, blue cornflower accents, nose green and spicy. Gave leaf a quick hot rinse before steep. After steep, leaf is not fully unfurled. Liquor greenish-yellow, pale and clear. Aroma like summer on the riverbank. Flavor starts lightly astringent, goes on to spicy, with palate-cleansing finish. Thumbs reserved ’til 2nd resteep.
