4 Tasting Notes
My first sip reminded me on :“mushrooms” :)
the same mushroom soup gourmet note kept on all other infusions.
Tea is nevertheless quite drinkable…really interesting and unusual.
Personally it’s OK to try it as sampler, I would hardly use it as everyday-office tea.
I bought it from berylleb in 8g vacuumed sample pack.
First infusion (45 s):
I would say that this tea is good introduction to oolongs with floral (orchid) note – at the beginning present mostly in smell. This note is really subtle, doesn’t irritate in any way. Taste is only slightly vegetal. After 15 mins when tea cooled down I started to taste floral notes as well. Interesting. Quite good for first steeping.
Second infusion (90s):
Floral smell is at same level as on first infusion.
Final: Considering I’m not fan of teas with floral notes this is quite good tea. It is nice and relaxing so I’d recommend it to anyone who is fond of smell of orchids.
Flavors: Flowers, Orchid, Vegetal
One of the first teas that made me interested in Taiwan Oolongs. Butter smell is in pefect harmony with the whole impression.
Personally I steep it around 7-8 times…basically one teaspoon for whole working day at the office.
As Leon and some other members mentioned, I started with less then one minute for first steep time.
Flavors: Butter, Fruity
