This is a fairly expensive roasted oolong. It has a strong roast profile, tasting strongly of the roast throughout the first four or five steeps. In my opinion it is a little too roasted. It was quite nice in the seventh and eighth steeps if a little weak. A sweet note did develop when the roast faded, not sure what to call it.
I steeped this tea eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 7.9g leaf and 200 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, and 30 sec. I think it was pretty much played out at eight steeps but I suppose I could have squeezed one or two more steeps out of it.
