Spring 2018, 5 grams, all from derk.
Dry leaf smell smells after fruits with cinnamon.
1st is, as usual for me, 15 seconds long.
It smells after fruits, but tastes really sweet, like cereal maybe with sugar. Maybe bit of malt.
20 seconds for second steep.
Fruits and malt. Good.
Raisins? Certainly sweet notes… bit of malty. Maybe baked bread as derk notices.
4th, 40 seconds.
Now the baked bread is present for sure. But somehow sweet. Great though.
5th, 50 seconds.
Bit of florarity appears. Sweet and floral, with bread. Weird. But so tasty…
6th, one minute.
Yep, floral. But certainly not overwhelming.
7th, 90 seconds.
Bit weaker. I think that 8th will be last one.
I just kept in gaiwan. For 90+ seconds. Close to 120 seconds for sure…
Derk – Thank you! My first GABA oolong. And it is so tasty. Creamy, but – fruity, baked bread, so much…different notes. I really enjoyed and another style I have to check when ordering somewhere next time.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Cream, Floral, Fruity, Malt
