Wow! Someone told me: “these hit hard for what they are.” Well put, well put.
I steamed on the rinse, and then drank the rinse anyway. I could tell where this one was going. Lots of up front woody notes from the roast, keeping water in the ~205DEGF range.

A great deal of flavor on the tongue, with some astringency/puckering. Hallmark oolong taste comes in after first hit with a little green flushing and a strong/long finish. 8g might have even been too much for my 150mL gaiwan, which is surprising since I am usually into about 10g of oolong with that much water.

Definitely fewer floral/honey notes on this one and more roasty, nutty goodness.

Flavors: Roasted, Woody

8 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

I’m getting (back) into teas this year with my latest loose leaf revelation. Member of the Liquid Proust Discord server and enjoyer of all things cha qi.

Also enjoyed are all of the historical implications of tea culture, and the bountiful variety in teas of the world.
Take a moment to meditate with a cup in hand, and our world will seem clearer when the last sip leaves your cup!

My rating system is in honor of K.S.

90-100 Stellar, to be displayed proudly if shared with guests. Or just a tea that hits its mark well.
80-90 I enjoy this tea a lot, would purchase and drink it. Fine if it lives in the pantry
70-80 Above Average, would drink it and probably still buy if the mood struck me.
50-70 Average, I would still drink it when available.
0-50 I don’t care for this tea, and have no desire to care for it.
