Goddamn! By far the best oolong I’ve ever had. Instantly in my top five.
I need to process and meditate on this cup before I can make a review because there is just WAY too much going on in this. Whoa. Will give a full review in a bit, once my tea drunk wears off.
Flavors: Blood orange, Jasmine, Mineral, Summer, Sweet Potatoes
Although it’s called Brothers Oolong, it has a very feminine energy to it, definitely a “princess” of teas. Steeped liquid is very light in color, which is deceiving for how incredibly deep and flavorful it is. Very floral yet very well balanced. Sipping it brings images of white orchid gardens, egyptian cotton bedding and silk garments. Leaves change color dramatically through several steepings, from a deep velvet black to a wonderful jade green. Can be enjoyed by any level of tea drinker, but it takes a skilled hand to bring out the best in it. Truly a world class tea by any standards. Actual steeping time I used for this tasting was closer to 7 seconds at 212f. A delicate tea to brew, steeping any longer risks pulling too much bitterness from the tea and masking the deep and complex floral aspects of it.
