Gong fu 1g tea to 15 g water, 20s wash, 50seconds + 15 each steep

Received as a sample from eco-cha’s subscription service (twice, actually, but not complaining)

Everything I love in high mountain oolong is here: nice balance of savory/sweet, smooth buttery mouthfeel, intense aroma. Highly recommend!

Not sure about this one. It does well when brewing in a mug, but doesn’t hold up to gong fu brewing – it’s a bit too weak. By no means a bad tea, but not the quality I expect when paying such a premium ($29 for 75g) .

This is my first time ordering a whole cake, so I’m not too great at breaking off whole chunks at a time. Best I can do right now is pick off a few leaves at a time, with the end result being a bit like maocha.

Very sweet, not very bitter/astringent. The aroma is incredible, super sweet stone fruit and honey.

Brewed 1g/15ml with boiling water

Unique and a lot of fun. The maltiness of the black with the sweetness of the white tea are balanced quite well. Reminds me a bit of Arnold Palmer but all tea?

Brewed Gongfu, but seeing in comments that I should try grandpa style as well. One of my favorite from White2tea so far.

Agree with LuckyMe, sweet, caramel, pecan all there. Part of Taiwan Sourcing intro pack, best one I’ve had from them so far.

Sweet, light, stonefruit. I usually find Taiwan Sourcing brew recommendations to be a bit on the long side, but worked out well for this one.

Was a bit confused by this one until I reread the description. Definitely on the lighter side, super approachable for a ripe.
