From The Devotea

One of our favorite Chinese oolongs. Enticing aroma and unforgettable taste. You’ll get several infusions with every cup.

This is one of the great Classic Chinese oolongs. It’s named for Kwan Yin (Guan Yin or Kwannon) the Goddess of Mercy. Steep at 185 degrees F for 1-2 minutes, drink and re-infuse 4-6 times, or until your mind enters a quiet state of nirvana.

The aroma of the dry leaves was mostly vegetal, maybe a little herbal. Once they were wet, the roast was the main smell. The flavor of this tea was herbal and had a very noticeable menthol-cooling effect in the mouth, at least for the first five or so steeps. The flavor was also vegetal, moreso towards the end of the tea. The body was not particularly notable. The leaves seemed pretty beat-up upon inspection, though I didn’t look at them too closely. A tasty tea, and the first I’ve had with such a noticeable cooling effect. Looking forward to sessioning this tea some more.
