Amount (tsp. / ml) 2 / 250

Named after the biggest monolith from its native mountain range Wu Yi, Great King captivated us with its remarkable presence and strong lingering honey note. Teas from this area are called “Yan Cha” or “Rock Oolong” and they are famous for their meticulous, long processing and inviting yet highly sophisticated aroma.

Brewed in my 350ml/12oz workhorse tea mug with water as hot as the water dispenser in the office can put out + a splash of cold water to reduce the wait time to a minimum. Dark, fairly large leaf, the color of dark chocolate and cocoa nibs. Beautiful polished bronze liquor. Deep honey, sweet floral aroma, milk chocolate, roasted nuts, caramel and a touch of burnt sugar. The liquor is missing some of the sweetness found in the leaf. More leaf/less water next time around maybe? Slight greenness later on. Easy drinking oolong.
