I received this sample a short while ago from Temple Road Tea from Taiwan. I have to admit i’m a bit late with my review but here we go, better late then never i guess!
The sample is packaged with nice brewing instructions but i’m not so happy with steeping a green oolong for 6min for a first infusion. I’m going with 3min and the 95°c water.
The rolled up balls of tea are pretty big, among the biggest i had in a long time. The resulting brew gives a light green very fresh looking cup of tea. The steeped leaf’s in the pot are huge, very huge and not cut up in smaller pieces like u usually see with lesser quality oolongs. Taste wise its very soft in the mouth maybe even a bit floral and most certain creamy but not to much. Its a very refreshing cup, the way i like a green oolong.
I can compare this the with a ali shan or a yellow gold, but its more something in between as far than i can remember (because its been a while that i had a green oolong), have to say i prefer this one over the tiger monk i had tried a while ago.
Going to make a other tasting note late on when i tried more of this sample!
