From Tea & Sympathy

This oolong almost defies description!

It is creamy like Jin Xuan, it is lightly roasted with obvious stone fruit notes like a Dong Ding, it is aromatic like a Taiwanese high mountain oolong, it is both comforting and spirited, it will take you on a journey to a pristine mountainside where you breathe the brisk high air and feel leaves rustling beneath your feet.

Only small quantities of this stunning Winter tea from Northern Thailand are produced. It is hand-picked and hand processed.

Origin: Doi Mae Salong, Northern Thailand

Preparation advice:
Quantity: 3g per 200ml (1 tsp per cup)
Steeping time: 2-3 mins
Water temperature: 90°C

Aroma: Light and well balanced, if somewhat underwhelming. The creaminess and butter of a Taiwaneese Oolong, combined with the woody, peaty notes of a Nth Thailand tea. Slightly vegetal with grassy notes.

Palate: As with the nose, this tea finds an interesting middle ground between a rich, buttery unfermented/green oolong and a more woody, vegetal and fresh Thai green tea. Nuttiness and a lingering sweetness. The result is easy drinking and pleasant. Very well balanced without the usual ‘forest floor’ palate of many Thai teas. Despite a fresh, grassy undertone the tea has almost no astringency.

Colour: Golden yellow.

Overall: Quintessentially Northern Thai, but with a more restrained nose and palate than any other tea from the region I’ve tried. Both refreshing and comforting. Yet another ‘green’ oolong I’d be happy to drink every day, but loses points for being more expensive than others.

Price: AUD$33/100g
