From Tao Tea Leaf

Tie Guan Yin is among the best and most popular oolong teas in the world. The tea is named after Guanyin (or Kannon) the bodhisattva of compassion and mercy. This medium bodied tea has a very refined and complex flavour – sweet with some floral notes. There is a very light creaminess reminiscent of milk oolong and the aftertaste is long lasting and sweet like a sugar cookie.

Just the perfect amount of floral today, in the first few infusions. Seriously. Really needed that.
And I finally noticed that same roastiness from the High Mountain tea version, in this one. Funny, my last cup didn’t have it at all.
Later steeps have a much more complex nature to it. Less floral and more mineral and apricot. Also getting what they mean about sugar cookies. There is a sweetness in all the infusions that hangs out through the whole sip. Oh and a lovely tartness, like plums just before they ripen. Yum.
Made it to the seventh one (long steeping the final one now) and it has a bit of a stale note. I guess I’m wringing out those leaves pretty good!
Heh. My tongue is burning in a pleasant way, but methinks that may be from the stir fry I had with dinner. We added a lot of garlic :D
