From Tillerman Tea

Cuifeng is a peak in the Lishan mountain range that is located in north-eastern Nantou County. The tightly rolled dark green leaves yield a brew that is golden yellow in color. The nose is rich and penetrating with buttery notes. In the mouth Mr. Chen’s Cuifeng displays very good, balanced, structure, is full of “up front” flavor, and is rich and viscous, with a long and persistent finish. Once again, this Cuifeng represents fine example of what good tea from Lishan should deliver. And again, it is one of my favorite teas in the Tillerman selection.

I picked up a 1/2oz sample from the SF Tea Festival 2019. At the show, I tasted the 3rd steep of the tea and it was tasty, so I had to pick up some to try at home.

Summary: This is a very lovely, but understated tea that is great for when you something lighter in flavor. It definitely has the Lishan qualities - nice milky/buttery flavors intermingled with lovely floral notes. It’s extremely well balanced in flavors; good viscosity that coats the tongue with an astringency that you can feel on the tongue and partially down the throat, with a medium finish. This tea if fairly consistent throughout steeps.

Tillerman Tea recommends the following: 6grams per 100ml @ 212F for 25 seconds, then 20s, then increasing from there.

I sometimes follow the recommendations, but in this instance, I didn’t, preferring to try this first with my general brewing style to an unknown tea — 5 grams / 150 ml of water — but I did use the recommended brewing times.

150ml water @ ~200F for 25s, 20s, 30s, 45s, 60secs, etc.
As mentioned earlier, the steeps were fairly consistent in aroma and flavor profile.

This is not a complicated tea, but it is very good. i suspect that if I brew this at the recommended amounts (6grams per 100ml of water), the flavors will be much more intense. I’ll update this review once I get around to doing that.
