Yet another sample from Teavivre! Thanks as always!This was an unfamiliar name that I was eager to try. The tight coils of leave had a cool, high mountain smell to them, which as I discovered, was because this is a type of high mountain oolong. Sometimes I wonder about how much I do not know! As the leaves unfurled, they produced a very sweet vegetal smell.
The liquid is smooth and delicate, with a taste of vegetal sweetness. Due to the mild nature of the tea, there is plenty of room to mess around with steep time without having to worry too much about over steeping. This would be a good tea for someone who enjoys more mild oolongs than some of the bolder flavors.
