It is definitly a light roast – more akin to an Anxi jade oolong than a roasted oolong.

Creamy, sweet, very smooth. Lightly vegetal (in a jade oolong kind of way), but strongly reminds me of other Anxi oolongs I have had. Namely, milk oolongs from the region with their creamy buttery mouthfeel.

Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Smooth, Sweet, Vegetal

From the Aged Oolong Group Buy I didn’t see this in Steepster, but hope I haven’t created a duplicate.

This is pretty much the exact opposite to the last aged oolong I tried. It is light and fruity, and doesn’t really seem to be aged.

1st (60 s steep): Nice floral/fruity nose. The tea doesn’t taste old at all. It has a nice texture; grassy with a hint of citrus and flowers. Very smooth with a long pleasant finish. The only signs of age are that it is very smooth, and the length of the finish. This is pretty much the opposite of my last aged oolong: very light and delicate. It has good depth of flavor but otherwise isn’t that different from a fresh oolong.

2nd steep (60 s): Spice has replaced the citrus and flowers. The grassiness is still there. As I sip, I notice a slight bitterness, and as my perception of it increases, I enjoy the cup less. 3rd (1 minute): Similar to the second steep but no bitterness. Very good, but I don’t really see the difference between this and a newer tea. 4th steep (2 minutes): smooth, slightly buttery texture. Good finish.
