It’s thick. It’s sweet. It’s floral. All qualities I should like on paper.
It’s soapy. It’s alkaline. It’s drying.
I tried. I really did. I made it 3 steeps before having to stop. I looked at the leaves drying in my gaiwan for 2 days after and couldn’t bring myself to try again. I can see why others enjoyed it, namely for its intensely forward sweetness and fragrance, but it’s simply not for me. I came into the session expecting a mineral Wuyi oolong but it’s instead like some kind of bastardized Dancong oolong, which I don’t much care for to begin with. Thanks anyway for the try, White Antlers :) Glad the majority of the bag went to people who can appreciate it.
