I think I measured out the low side of 3g of leaves this time. It was a bit too watery, and there was almost no scent left in the 3rd infusion. Better to err on the side of more leaves with this oolong.

I’m not sure if it’s just my headache I am trying to chase away with this oolong… but I find the taste of this one a bit nauseating. I do feel honeysuckle is apt, but its almost sickly sweet and paired with an oolong so roasty it seems like a black tea. It’s not BAD it just isn’t impressing me. It doesn’t have the complexity I’d expect an oolong too… it’s pretty much a straight forward roasty honeysuckle.

It may not be bad, but it is disappointing

I love being able to call drinking tea ‘research’ :)

This tea has the smell of honeysuckle before it is even brewed! The taste of both the oolong and the honeysuckle is present. Unfortunately this is somewhat dry and really rough to drink as one sips more. I really wish this was a little smoother because it has a nice complex taste between the dark oolong and honeysuckle.
This is one that I’ll send to someone else to verify the dryness.

I made a pot of this last night, but I think I under leafed, because it was pretty light on the flavour, particularly for a highly oxidized, dark roasted oolong. I’ll try again soon, following their steeping directions.

I western brewed this a couple of days ago at work and wasn’t too impressed but decided it was probably human error and that I wasnt giving the tea a fair go brewing it this style.

This afternoon I pulled out my new teaware and decided to give this another go in the Gaiwan. Now we’re talking! Steeped for 1 minute at 204F the tea gave out some cocoa notes which became more pronounced as the tea cooled from the steeping temperature. Second steeping for 2 minutes and the cocoa notes became very apparent, a hint of honey started to creep in and there was a little more of a buttery mouthfeel at the end of the sip. Third steeping for 3 minutes and the liquor was much darker than previously and the cocoa notes started to fade into the background and I started to taste stone fruit and honey. Fourth steeping for 4 minutes and the tea tastes more vegetal and a little herbaceous. Would have liked to try a fifth steep but I had some errands to run and had to get moving…

Oooh, I have that one! Haven’t tried it yet, but your tea not makes me think I need to move it up in the queue.

beelicious

I was pretty impressed with it once I took the time to actually treat it right :) the sky high oolong is next on my list to try this week!
