Grown at over 1500m these beautifully made hand picked leaves come from Don-En Shan in Nantou County. Tightly rolled bold deep green leaves with an intensely forward and sweet aroma. These leaves produce an incredibly sweet and florally complex tasting tea liquor with a medium body and a silky smooth mouth feel. Very Highly Recommended! – 50g Vacuum Sealed Package

I was going to be patient, but this little package begged to drink. One smell, and I recognized the high mountain peach scent of the dry leaf.
This was a high quality tea that you could Gong Fu or steep Western. The 15 sec rinse yielded a creamy mouthfeel that some might call floral. It was a little bit fruity, maybe something like coconut or peach, but was silky smooth and lubricating. Four more cups later, which will soon be five (that turned to six), and I got a lovely array of flavors. I went from 30 seconds to “over steeping” it quick. The over steep yielded something like the Misty Mountain, and I can only guess that this was a Qin Xin varietal since it has the creamy peach note.
In summary: a lovely high mountain oolong with a great mouth feel, and all the usually awesome dimensions of its varietal. The fruitiness and florals were more subsided than I’ve had in others, but the lilac was incredibly present in the aroma. Mouthfeel dominates with a very light fruity sweetness. I’ve had sweeter ones before, but again, it really doesn’t matter because of the mouthfeel. I would probably use this as an introduction to high mountain oolongs for a newb since it’s so flexible to brew. Not too sure about the price. I am sure of the joy of sampling this, and how awesome Evol Ving Ness is!
