5g. Gaiwan.

I bought this after reading a favourable recommendation from AllanK. Thanks – keep up those reviews.

Dry: Dusty, musky, chocolate. Loose leaves. The leaves looks like roasted Oolong. There is a powdery dust on the inside of the zip lock pouch.

Wet: Aroma of porridge, sugary sweet and hot milk. There is a mixture of dark green and dark brown leaves. No large twigs.

It brews dark brown in seconds and has a soft flavour of porridge oats, with a soft sugary sweetness that is picked up on the sip and continues into the finish. No fishiness here. Not creamy sweet like White2Tea CNNP and not as dark as YS Menghai 2008, so somewhere in between.
This tea sits well above low quality ripe, but is too singularly porridge-sweet to be outstanding. It delivered an impressive number of steeps (7-10) and is still going.

I have yet to gongfu this one. I have only brewed it before work when I brew western style for lack of time. It is good western style.

I drink mainly rooibos and peppermint tea these days as I leave my pu-erh tea to age.

I decided to join Steepster because I have found other people’s opinions on teas very useful in deciding what to buy, and I thought I would contribute.

Online orders so far:
Dragon Tea House – Free shipping and a huge selection of tea.
White2Tea – Excellent communication with the seller and good selection of teas. Teas came in metallic zip lock bags.
Yunnan Sourcing – Huge selection; recent change to delivery price made this a good option.
SampleTea – Selection of aged teas. Teas delivered were very well packaged and presented.
Pu-erh.sk Small selected. Excellent communication with seller. Packing was solid – the teas were more than safe.
Street Shop 88 (eBay) Low prices with free delivery. Sample size was precisely what I ordered.
O-Cha Seller of Japanese teas. The daily Sencha and Shincha were awesome.
Essence Of Tea – The order arrived after over 5 weeks, but I am really impressed with the teas so far.
Chawangshop – Order came very well packaged.
