Yesterday I received a care package from Stephanie with many samples. This sample was one of them. I wanted to try it for some time.
Im oolong explorer. So far i think i love dark roasted oxidized oolongs. I prefer dried fruits and nuts notes and florals… lets just say we are not friends and not enemies lol
Muzha Tieguanyin is a beautiful tea. I tried one recently from Teaave and really liked it. but im not going to compare these two teas. they have very different profile .
This particular tea is delicious. very aromatic. The roast done right. its not stated on website roast level or oxidation or any other useful info for novice like me. Hopefully they will add this info. I think its medium roasted TGY but please correct me if im wrong.
6.5g into 100ml pot, 200F. flash rinse and steeps of 10/15/20sec etc
The brew is dark yellow color. Smells really nice of roasted nuts and fruits. tastewise its not that fruity. it was more on floral spectrum for me. It has very thick mouthfeel. Later steeps ( i dont remember how many i had , 12 maybe) produced strong mineral note which remind me Wuyi oolong. Once i had a long steep close to 1min. it was too bitter and strong for my taste.
I think this tea is very interesting. i highly recommend to try it. Since its only 2 Muzha TGY i’ve tried i cannot declare that this is the best. A lot of samplings are ahead to figure out my likes and dislikes.
Thank you so much Stephanie for sharing your tea with me
