From O5 Tea

ORIGIN: Jinuo Shan, Yunnan, China,
GPS: 23º N 101º E
TASTING NOTES: Flowers | Apricots | Clover Honey
GROWER: Zhang Family

The Zhang family are part of the native Yi population of Yunnan in China. Their traditional lands are 2000m above water level and the tea trees that grow there are hundreds of years old. White tea was very recently introduced to the province of Yunnan and the Yi community have perfected the technique in a short time. Since the first time that Grandmother Zhang, accompanied by her pet monkeys, prepared and served us this tea, it has become a staple at O5

Slow drying under the moonlight; the downy side resists oxidization and remains white, whereas the smooth side is exposed to oxygen and darkens.

The taste is unique and very calming. The broth is very light but also slightly viscous or thick in the mouth if only a little. There is weight to the broth which douses the tongue full of nostalgic memories of night skies. The taste is very balanced and round. The aroma is very flowery and somewhat dewy like grass in the early morning. This tea brings me a sense of calm.

Gorgeous cake, mix of leaves and buds that alternate between being almost white to a dark olive color. Medium compression, I think (I haven’t had much experiences with cakes yet, but it seemed pretty middle of the road), with the ability to break off some nice full leaves.

Recommend western steeping over gong fu, but y’all feel free to do your own thing. My default was 3g tea for 240ml water (8oz), 3 minutes the first steep and then add a minute to both steeps 2 and 3. That being said, I went as high as 9g for 240ml, and while it was a bit intense, it never developed any astringency.

For Gong Fu I tried 6g in 100ml, still at 175F, but for one reason or another I could never get it dialed in. As I really dug the western steeps, I eventually abandoned the attempts.
