This is steeped in a small teapot (200 mL?) , I am gong fu brewing this with 4g leaf
Thank you to Mackie for the sample.
Steep 1: 70 deg. C, 10 seconds
Very light, jade oolong flavour is present, slightly buttery
Steep 2: 70 deg. C water, 45 secpnds
Stronger flavour, milk flavour is starting to come out, but this tea is extremely astringent
steep 3: boiling water, 8 seconds
hmm flavour is weak again but astringency is back, nothing really stands out (no floral, fruity, creamy notes), flavour is pretty unremarkable and generic
Steep 4: boiling water, 45 seconds
Astringency is back. Apparently short steep times give you little flavour, and longer ones are overpowered by astringency
I’m going to end things here. This is unimpressive and there are many better milk oolongs out there for a similar price. Don’t waste your time with this one.
Flavors: Butter, Milk
