(1st steep: 1 min) This tea is pleasant. There is less floral notes than I was expecting, but they are present. There is a slight mineral flavor and some slight butter in the finish and mouthfeel. There is a slight sweet fruit at the end that I can’t quite place. All in all a nice enjoyable post-lunch tea.
(2nd steep: 1 min 30 sec) One thing that I enjoy about oolong teas, besides that they taste amazing, is that they change while not changing over multiple steepings. This tea is the same. I notice a much deeper fruit flavor. I want to say it is plum or cherry. The floral and mineral components are still present and balance out the fruit. There is a refreshing quality to this tea that is hard to describe in any greater detail.
(3rd steep: 2 min) This steeping the flavors have shifted again with the butter being the first one experienced. Floral and mineral are both present with the sweet fruit finishing out the tea. This is a tea I can see myself coming back to again and again.
Flavors: Butter, Cherry, Floral, Mineral, Plum
