From chinalife

A rich and luxurious tea with honeysuckle, butter biscuit, cream, vanilla and a light sugar cane sweetness. Picked high up on Alishan mountain in Taiwan from the Jin Xuan cultivar renowned for its creamy and milky characteristics. Our tea farmers have grown this cultivar high up in the most incredible tea mountain in Taiwan – Alishan in Nantou county. This tea is hand produced through the night over 36 hours to capture the essence of the mountain before being sent to tea roasters for a very light roasting to soften and smooth any astringency. The combination of this leaf and that environment makes a mesmerising cup of tea. Pure, fresh and light green oolong floral, grassy and nutty flavours are luxuriously mellowed and enriched by the creamy finish of Jin Xuan to create a tea to savour. It pairs beautifully with any kind of desserts or biscuits but is perfect as a tea ceremony tea surrounded by good friends and family.

4gr in 300ml at 95 degree c. 2 min 1st steep then 30 second increments each steep.

1st Steep.

Pale green tea.
Aroma is vegetal and milky.
Taste is vegetal, some sweetness, milk, some biscuit and green leaf.

2nd Steep

Aroma is stronger vegetal notes.
Taste is green leaf, more cream than milk this time. The sweetness is a little less noticeable due to being overpowered by its greenness.

3rd steep

More of orange green tea in colour

Aroma has toned down on its vegetal notes.
Taste is more mellow on the green notes now, not as creamy either. It seems to have developed a little bit of pepper on the back of the tongue with some warmth. Once the tea has cooled a little the creaminess returns stronger.
