drank Wuyi Shui Xian by Rishi Tea
2 tasting notes

I really love this tea! It’s a very sweet, mellow kind of tea and the dry leaves smell so much like raisins. It’s a pretty dark oolong and the company who makes it recommends 1 Tbs per 8oz, which I think is a bit excessive, so I stick to my standard of 1 tsp per 8oz (although as the night went on I did back down on the amount of water on subsequent steepings without consequence). It’s not as complex as I generally like my teas, but I’ve only been brewing it western style. I think I’ll try a gongfu style session with this soon now that I have an idea of what it tastes like! I love this tea in the morning or in the evening especially. It’s definitely one of my favorites, it makes me feel very calm and happy.
