From Dragon Tea House

A famous Oolong tea of Fujian Province Huang Jin Gui is very popular for its refreshing taste. A tea with bright golden liquor and a flowery aroma. This tea is one of the four famous anxi oolong along with Tie guan yin. The name ‘Huang jin gui’ means ‘golden osmanthus’, which is earned through the golden liquor its yellowish green leaves infused into, and for its distinct osmanthus flower-like aroma. Truly a treat not to be missed.

This fresh scenting tea is smooth and rich. It has a refreshing flowery smell and the tea has a bright golden liquor. This Premium grade Huang Jin Gui differs from our regular grade from the amount of leaves and stem is picked and process. This grade has mostly leaves and less stem. Distinct osmanthus flower-like aroma. The taste is rich yet complex with a flowery honeysuckle flavor.

Temperature: 195F, Boiling first then let water sit for 30 seconds; Use: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces of water; Infusion time: 4-5 minutes. Please be reminded that you should always rinse the tea first before consuming it.

Place one teaspoon per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Switch the kettle off, before it boils, when you hear the water rumbling. Add the hot, but not boiling, water and infuse for 3 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling.

Soo I don’t know exactly what I expected this tea to be…but I had really wanted to try it when i put in my order.
This tea was kinda flowery and grassy-it reminds me more of a green tea rather than an oolong to be honest. It’s definitely not a heavy or overwhelming tea. It’s very very light. And the dry leaf aroma is hardly even there.
Probably one of the lightest oolongs I’ve ever had. Well, least I got to try it. xD
But I won’t drink it again. It’s an interesting tea, but not for me.
Going on the “to sell” list. xD

Do you want to do a swap?

Ost

Normally, I’d probably say yes, but I have a crap load of samples from swaps or just from orders that I’ve been needing to try…sooo I am just gonna sell this one. I’ll sell it cheap though, if you’re that interested in it, well I’ll sell it cheap either way. But it’s 50g minus 1tsp, just opened it today, and put it in a ziplock bag to help keep it fresh since those bags don’t have a seal on them, Skysamurai.
