Very pleasant and fragrant. It smells like Easter lilies. Infusions after the first start tasting more and more like cooked spinach, but the fragrance remains.

7 grams @ 160F for 1:00
lid aroma: vague sweetness with something slightly roasty
wet leaves smell of apricot, very fragrant
liquor is fairly insipid.
aftertaste: apricot

@165F for 2:00
lid aroma: hint of cocoa
wet leaves: slight stone fruit and stewed vegetables
liquor remains relatively flavor-free…
aftertaste: celery, apricot

@170F for 3:00
lid aroma: more cocoa
wet leaves: strong apricots and stewed vegetables
liquor: not much more than astringency

The wet leaves throughout smelled truly lovely, and it’s a pity none of that translated to flavor in the liquor. Had to crank it hard to get anything out of it, and still it was much more about aromas than flavor. Which reminds me, the brewing method suggested on the label is absurd and will produce only hot water.

All in all, seems like it would be fine for someone who loves a delicate tea, but I wouldn’t buy this again.

Flavors: Apricot, Cocoa, Spinach

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 1 min, 0 sec 7 g 4 OZ / 118 ML

May I ask what you are using for water? We sell a ton of this tea both online and wholesale to coffeehouses/restaurants. Do you know if this was the 2017 or 2018? -Grateful, Garret

Hi Garret, this is 2018 per the label on the bag. I have municipal water that comes from an aquifer and is very hard, but that hasn’t been an issue in brewing other teas. Is this one particularly sensitive to water?

2017 tea, brewed in May 2018.
1st infusion at 1:00
STRONG honey scent immediately on taking the lid off the gaiwan, that vanished quickly.
Pleasant taste, mouthfeel. Very mellow. A bit of astringency in the background. A touch of sweetness. I like it.
Faint ghost of white grape juice and dryness as an aftertaste.

for 1:30
Very slight tobacco aroma on the lid. Liquor itself smells faintly of honey.
A bit more astringency, a bit less sweetness. Juicy. Something almost like cigarette ash? But not unpleasant.

for 2:00
Not much difference at all from 1:30. Just a little more astringency and less of everything else. Seems like that’s all I’m going to get out of this one.

Flavors: Honey, White Grapes

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 1 min, 0 sec 3 g 4 OZ / 118 ML

NOTE: Brewed @175F this was unbearably astringent. I wouldn’t go above 160.

did a session with this one after lunch and i’m kinda “meh” with this one. western was ok, but not as wonderful as some of garrett’s other shou and brewed up gonfu today it was just kinda boring. Nothing changed much over the few steepings i had but it wasn’t a bad tea…just…boring? No fishiness here for me, just an average mellow shou with a bit of earthiness to it. Sending the rest of this off to Terri to see if she prefers it :)

trying to drink a little bit of my puerh today as well. Some days it feels like i’m getting dangerously close to having only puerh in my cupboard haha. This one was a western brew – it’s a nice cup imo…slightly sweet but overall a good solid ripe puerh. I’ll have to see how this fares at a later date gonfu style :)

Ovetime, I’ve become skeptical when tea companies list oolongs as buttery; when I see “buttery” I expect a flavour and texture explosion evoking all the oily, salty-sweet richness of life. Butiki’s ambiguously named “Organic Sparrow Tongue” Oolong always delivered. Some batches of Shan Li Xi deliver (with jam like a delicious, fully loaded scone). This Tie Guan Yin delivers too and its glorious.

I’m internally squeeing right now. I want to yell and to curse all the other Tie Guan Yin oolongs I’ve had, which will now and forever be deemed insufficient. It’s like, after years of being indifferent to Chardonnays, stumbling upon a “butter bomb” Californian Chardonnay and realizing life could be beautiful (I’m sorry Chardonnay purists, I know this preference is wine sacrilege of the highest order). This is a Lilac butter bomb and it’s even better.

Anyways, I’m so grateful for this free sample. I would’ve never ordered this on my own because I thought I was done with Tie Guan Yin varieties. You did right, Mandala!

Now I’m off to play with the rest and see how it holds up to multiple steeps and sessions.

Steep Count: 3 + Rinse. Subsequent steeps taste of lilac cream.

Thank you to CrowKettle for the share!

This smells and tastes just like my favourite milk oolong (China milky oolong from Special Teas Inc). The super creamy milk fragrance, some apricot stone fruit notes, undertones of mango and pineapple. It is very rich and decadent-exactly what I want in a milk oolong.

Flavors: Apricot, Creamy, Mango, Milk, Smooth, Stonefruits

Garret

It’s a great one! It was our number one selling tea for 2017 and so far, for 2018 as well! I’m glad you enjoyed it. G

This is my first experience with The Shu Fits and so far so good! The dry leaves smell like cocoa powder and make my mouth water when I inhale deeply from the gawain. I rinsed twice with boiling water. The first few steepings were very quick tasted like dark chocolate with hints of tobacco, leather, and a savory fruit. Raisins? Every sip conjures up memories of walking through a quiet forest in the early morning just after a rain.

On the third steeping I started to catch notes of brown sugar followed by a subtle bitter dryness in the finish. During later steepings (#4-6) the dark chocolate mellowed into milk chocolate and i also tasted some mineral notes. The brown sugar sweetness is still hanging out in the shadows only to make its presence felt every now and then.

Overall, I really like this tea and look forward to my next session with it.

Very bitter

Flavors: Bitter

Garret

Young purple leaf tea really does well with lower water temps and/or very short steepings. We have two coffeeshops that sell this tea like hot cakes but they use a little less leaf and brew at 195. We like this with 160,175 degrees and brewed up farmer/grandpa style. Purple leaf can be super strong and have those bitter notes for several more years than the regular sheng pu’er. Try at some lower temps and see if you don’t have a different experience. Grateful, Garret
