Thank you so much for the samples, Aprtea.com! This is intriguing… it’s a cube of oolong which I have never seen before. Look at that picture! Oolong shaped into a cube, kind of like pu-erh but even most pu-erh isn’t shaped into a small cube and then wrapped in paper (and then foil for the sample). The closest thing would be a pu-erh tuocha. The leaves in the cube are shades of the usual oolong green and even bits of red. I was also intrigued with this being called ‘orchid’ because my preferred oolongs are the floral type. I used half the cube for a full mug. The first steep is delicious. Very smooth and sweet and full. No astringency at all. I wouldn’t say it is the most floral tasting tea I’ve tried, it’s more buttery and sweet. The second steep was probably over steeped by me a tad bit but only made the flavor a bit more astringent, not overly so. The third steep was even fuller with the buttery sweetness. I wouldn’t say I ever really noticed orchid or any other type of flower, but this is certainly an oolong I wouldn’t mind drinking. I think maybe I should have used less than half the cube and maybe didn’t steep at temperatures this high to tastes more to my liking. I also think I could have steeped these leaves much more than three times. But a cube of oolong is certainly a novelty!
Steep #1 // half of a the cube for a full mug// rinse // 18 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 10 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #3 // 15 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
