Second of the samples that I got that I’m getting around to trying.

The dry leaves smell quite chocolatey, and I proceed with this session without doing a wash since the leaves aren’t tightly rolled or anything. The darkness of the liquor from the very first steep is shocking. I’ve never had an oolong that steeps out so dark!

The texture is extremely smooth, and the flavor is a blend of dark chocolate and roast, though it lacks any harshness whatsoever. One steep has a very sweet finish, the next a slight sourness, the next simply clean and smooth.

Overall, I’ve enjoyed this one, and I’m pretty sure I can get some more out of it, so I’ll come back to it tomorrow.

Unfortunately, I cannot tell you exactly every profile in the flavor due to my inability to properly taste/smell. I did notice a deep mineral flavor, with a hint of charcoal. My wife said it smelled like “burnt popcorn over charcoal” so these flavors/smells are obviously playing on the senses (which I can hardly obtain them through the taste). I didn’t brew this as long as other samples, but I totaled to 8 steeps (5s, 10s, 25s, 30s, 60s, 90s, 90s, 120s). The tea seemed to start heavy and end heavy; the middle of the session was mild/light.

I may have liked it less (or more?) if my sinuses weren’t out of control, but it helped relieve some issues considering taste. So, with that said, I can only rate it upon my session today.

Please try it again with clear sinuses, and with water at a full boil :) I’m glad it helped you!

This is an outstanding tea. The vendor, Tealife Hong Kong, is one of our own in the Steepster community, who is making some unique Hong Kong teas available to us. I purchased 4 oolongs. Today I sampled the first, the Hong Kong-Roasted High Fire Three Stamp Shuixian. I am a big fan of roasty oolongs, so I was excited to try this. On the website, the picture of the brewed tea looked like shu, and it was described as having an uber roast. All of this made me very interested…

The website description of this tea is spot on. The first steep was like thick chocolate soup, with a touch of astringency that was perfectly balanced. It tasted of raisins and cinnamon. Velvety smooth. The roast is all about bringing out new and interesting flavors rather than creating a roasty flavor. You can tell this tea was roasted by a craftsman, it is a deep dark brew. Very complex flavor profile, it already tastes almost like an aged oolong in some respects. This is going to be an excellent tea to store for aging. The tea energy was popping – I am so wired right now after only two steeps that I had to put it down and wait until I calm down a bit. I’m posting this in the meantime so I don’t know how this will steep out, but the description says I should get maybe 4 good steeps. This is a big tea…

Liquid Proust, I bet you will enjoy this one…

I will be purchasing more to age. I’m in love…

Thats great news, I was looking at this website with interest. Looking forward to the rest of your reviews. I really like good roasted oolongs

TeaLife.HK

Thank you for the review! Raisins and cinnamon is not something I’ve noticed myself, but I’ll look for those flavors the next time I drink the Three Stamp!

I actually sell aged Three Stamp on the site for only slightly more money—if you click through to the Three Stamp page, the aged stuff is sold in Hong Kong taels (37.8g). Five years of aging make the tea much smoother and the roaster states it is more aromatic, too.

Cool, I may give that a try as well.
