I reopened my bag of this oolong today, as I was really craving a vegetal, green oolong whilst I was revising anatomy. Though this didn’t turn out to be the vegetal tea (I think, really, I’d confused it with a Tieguanyin or Li/Ali Shan jade oolong) I’d confused it with, it was still really delicious.

Anyway, this tea was lovely! Refreshing and floral, with definite fruity notes. I’m only four or five steeps in, so this’ll deffo go on for a good bit longer, but it hasn’t let me down yet! I’m on to steeps of around 45 seconds, so I’m guessing I’ll get another three, maybe four infusions.

(Incidentally, I think I’ll use more leaf next time. The first steep, post-rinse, was surprisingly mild. No steep since then has been overly strong, either.)

Flavors: Floral, Fruity

I carried this session on today and it someone seemed to work better :S Maybe this is just one of those oolongs that peaks in steeps 3-8. I did them a little cooler, but all for quite long steeps, and it was delicious! Much fuller, sweet, green-“oolong” flavour :D

Bio

Junior doctor and casual tea-drinker.

It’s been a busy few years for me – I’ve graduated from med school and I’m now working full time as a junior doctor in a small UK hospital. I’ve returned Steepster to continue to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I remain particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
