From Zen Tea

This lightly oxidized oolong tea comes from Taiwan’s mountainous region of Nantou. This tightly rolled oolong yields a golden infusion with a flowery aroma and a subtle, buttery flavour. It has a smooth body and a clean, delicate mouthfeel.
Jade oolong tea is a successful new breed after 30 more years’ research by Taiwan Tea Experimental Station in 1981. Since its experiment code is 2029, most people call it #29. It is one of four tea cultivars in Taiwan.
Jade oolong is only suitable to be widely planted at an elevation below 1,000 meters, because its stem has too much water and its leaves are too thick to plant at a higher elevation.

Harvest: 2015 November
Origin: Mingjian Village(名間鄉) of Nantou County, Taiwan
Preparation:
Regular steeping (8 oz cup): 1.5 teaspoons (4 grams) of tea, 82-87 °C (180–190 °F) water temperature, 2-3 min. (Recommended to rinse the tea in your mug for 2-4 seconds before first steeping.) Re-steep 2-3 additional times.
Gaiwan steeping (in a gaiwan or small teapot under 6 oz): 2 teaspoons (4.5 grams) of tea. 82-87 °C (180-190 °F) water temperature, 2.5 min. first infusion, 2.5 min. second infusion, 3 in third infusion. (Recommended to rinse the tea in your mug for 2-4 seconds before first steeping. Re-steep 4-5 additional times.)

This is pretty good oolong. It had a bit of a grassy note at first. There was something of a creamy note too. There was some bitterness in the first couple of steeps that slowly turned into more of a sweet note. This was an excellent green oolong tea. It did start to get a bit watery in the seventh and eighth steep. I think this is an oolong that doesn’t resteep real well or maybe I just needed longer steeps.

I steeped this eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 7g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.
