Second to last oolong sample not yet tasted or written about. Progress!

This has a mild, very green, chlorophyll smell in the packet. I steeped in the gaiwan after a rinse at 195F starting at 15 seconds, +5 for subsequent steeps.

The tea is a pale yellow color and smells a little green, but mostly it smells sweetly floral.

I found the flavor consistent through 5 steeps. It was tasty enough that I went past the usual four. But mostly I was trying to figure out what I thought of it.

The flavor is a little elusive. It has a freshness that reminds me of the alishan I had yesterday, but it isn’t as floral. The flavor isn’t as strong, either. It’s not buttery or milky.

I may have underleafed some. The tea has a lot of volume. The leaves are big and twisty, and I may have not realized how much empty space there was between them.

Next time I’ll put in more leaf. But for now, I’m finding this to be a sort of an alishan lite. Pleasant, but not sure why I’d choose this one over the alishan when it has less flavor?
