A light, buttery infusion. This is a spring harvest and even in this late month I can taste the new growth, still fresh in this rolled oolong. More energizing than grounding. Golden yellow in the cup. Big leaves (for a spring Ali Shan) in mostly full leaf sets with sawtoothed, red edges. Lots of infusions for this one.

Had this with lunch as per rhinkle’s request. Gave it a quick wash before doing a short first steep. Very light golden liquor with a gentle creamy, floral flavor that takes a few steeps to really start to develop.

Once it does, I start getting some nice, nutty notes with smooth cream and bright florals and, eventually, some sweetness pushes into the forefront, as well. The mouthfeel on this one gets quite thick, viscous and silky, which helps further define this tea as my last session of the day comes to a close.
