Quick rinse to wash the leaves and heat the teaware; aroma is fruit and berries, made me salivate. It’s sweet and fruity with some minerals, light body but still buttery. Slight hint of “traditional roasting” which becomes more evident in following steeps, maybe because I pushed it a little harder. The tea has a lot of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel and energy. Leaves some astringency/dryness in the mouth, and I wonder how it will change with further aging..
At $3/g it’s obviously not a daily drinker, and probably too expensive for me to buy more. I’m still glad I bought it, because I haven’t been drinking much aged oolongs lately, and this is a reminder that I should not give up on them.
