From Cha Le

This tea is one of the ten most famous teas from China and is known for its strong aroma. Unlike other teas, the leaves of Iron Goddess are composed by two to three mature leaves, but no buds. Because it is partly oxidized, it combines both flavors of green tea and black tea.

Well, Steepster just magically lost my very long tasting note for this one. The first full-length one I’ve wrITTEN IN A WHILE, THANKS, STEEPSTER. To recap:

I’m starting my seventh steep now. First four were 10 seconds long, after that, 15. Brewed proper in my little koi gaiwan this time, 80°c. Leaves smell vegetal, but the liquor is sweet, like magnolia. Strongest infusion was probably the third, and each led with flowery notes, with a vegetal, broccoli or asparagus body; magnolia, maybe a vanilla-like orchid, sorta trails and lingers in the aftertaste. It’s a pretty even balance of the two; didn’t get anything particularly buttery, although the floral sensation tends to coat the mouth.

Around the sixth steep I started eating my dinner, but it was still going strong. Once the leaves fully opened (around the fifth steep), I found a good mix of broken and full leaves. Mostly broken, but still a few whole leaves.
