From Dragon Tea House

Oolong tea grows in Fujian province of China. There is a big mountain called: Wuyi Mountain in the northern Fujian province. On the rocks of this mountain grows some good teas. These teas are called: Wuyi Mountain Rock Oolong Tea, or, Wuyi Mountain Cliff Oolong Tea. Nowadays Wuyi rock oolong tea is more famous for its Weight Loss effect.

Gua Zi Jin is named after its appearance as the dry leaves are narrow and small which looks like melon seeds. This tea is a very rare, distinctive, complex oolong tea that comes from the Wuyi Mountains located in the northwest part of the Fujian province of China. The leaves are dark, and there is a classic deep chocolate aroma, with the slightest hint of tropical fruit and spice. This yan cha imparts a roasted mineral flavour, with a sweet aftertaste and no bitterness. The distinct taste has a full bodied flavour with an floral fragrance. Multiple infusions continue to offer Oolong flavour with a silky smooth aftertaste. These are spring leaves plucked from a rare ancient tree in Wuyi mountain, a remarkable and enjoyable oolong you can find in Dragon Tea House only! Brewing Guide: Note the following key features of this tea, Tea-Water Ratio: 1:4 Water Temperature: 100°C Steeping Time: 30-45 seconds Number of Infusions: 6-8 Use a Yixing teapot to bring out the best in our Wuyi Rock tea. Combine properly. It is the right combination of tea leaves, water temperature and brewing time. that results in a good cup of tea. Keep in mind that Kung Fu Cha offers an advantage over other brewing – higher water temperature.

Read one of Terri:s reviews of a roasty oolong a while back and i´ve been itching for some wuyi gong -fu. Tonight i wathced the final episode of “How i met your mother”, it was… wait for it…. Legendary ;)

To accompany the show i brought out the wuyi heavy artillery and I was not dissapointed.

6g (half-full pot)120ml yixing pot, water from tetsubin.

20s +15 per steeping. clear roasty notes, but it doesnt take over there is some flowery notes as well. Very well balanced! And strong, the last steep i forgot and oversteeped by two minutes. This session got me teadrunk… :)

highly recommended.

Always glad to inspire!

I’ve never watched How I Met Your Mother. My son Drew (age 25) loves that show, & has said that if he ever starts wearing nice clothes, he will pattern his wardrobe after Barney’s. :)
This will be one of those series that Tony & I watch, a season at a time on pajama days, most likely.
