This is excellent tea. I bought a sample of this a while back. Unfortunately they are now sold out. Like everything I seem to buy from Taiwan Sourcing it is good. It is a pleasant mix of sweet, and a little bit of astringent with a little bit of bitter. It is a greener oolong with some grassy notes too of course. It is not roasted. This is one I would be tempted to buy more of if it was still in stock. Ah well, whats the saying, you snooze you lose. I will enjoy the rest of my sample. I have enough for perhaps three more tea sessions or so.
I brewed this ten times in a 100ml gaiwan with 5.4g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 454 sec, and 1 min. I could definitely resteep this a few more times if I wasn’t at my caffeine limit for the day.
