The leaves of this dahongpao from Golden Coast Tea Club are consistent with what you would expect from this Wuyi oolong. I used 7g of leaf to 6oz boiling water in a gaiwan infusing for 5s increasing by ~3s every time. The aroma is spicy and has a strong smell of oak wood with hints of vanilla. The flavor has similar notes of wood, spice, and vanilla and is rich. The liquor is a nice ruby red. This is a good tea and I will definitely drink it again.
