From Daoist Meditation

Cuifeng is one of the highest peaks on which Taiwan tea is grown. Yu Feng Tea Garden is based at Cuifeng at 1700 meters and only specializes in high mountain green Oolong and Red Tea. The Kuei family believe that their tea should be enjoyed as it grows on the tree, so they do as little alteration to the leaves as possible and present a very pure, very sweet, very aromatic tea for us to drink and enjoy.

This is real Taiwan Oolong with huge aftertaste, long lasting mouth feel, a big sweet perfume, and all kinds of subtle tastes hiding inside its luscious leaves.

Brewing:

Gongfu: 3 g, 100 c water, 50 seconds through pour four. 1 minute after pour five, and three minutes after pour 7. You can brew this tea between 7 and 11 times.

I bought this tea about a year ago and it’s currently out of stock. This is close to my last session. I steeped 5 g of leaf in an 85 ml teapot at 195F for 25, 20, 25, 30, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, and 240 seconds.

The first steep has muted notes of cream, flowers, cornhusk, veggies, and grass. Even when I got it, the flavours weren’t too prominent. There’s no bitterness, and the tea is more vegetal than sweet. Hints of pineapple show up occasionally. The tea has good staying power, not getting too one-dimentionally vegetal until the seventh or eighth steep.

Although I wouldn’t classify this as a “really great oolong,” as I remember the website suggests, it’s a pretty decent one. I admit my expectations might have been too high, since this oolong is from the Li Shan region and these teas tend to be more complex. I’ve had better luck with this company’s darker oolongs.

Starting this one off with ~5g, 180F at 100ml with a 5s quick wash.

I’m fairly certain this is a type of milk oolong, as it looks just like other milk oolongs I’ve had in the past as well as having the distinct ‘creamyness’ that’s associated with milk oolong.

Steep times are as follows: 5s, 5s, 8s, 12s, 15s, 20s, 40s, 1m

For first impressions, this is a milk oolong tea that focuses less on the creamyness from milk oolong, and more on the floral flavours that the tea contains. Probably the most ‘floral’ tasting tea I’ve tasted to date with a rather persistent after taste.

When slightly oversteeped, it doesn’t get that nasty flavor of ‘petals’ that most floral teas taste, instead starts to adopt the heavy vegetal taste that other milk oolongs have.

This tea mainly has a very strong, but not piercing, floral flavour that rides over a smooth, creamy undertone. It’s a pleasant tea to relax with, regretfully it’s out of stock at the time of this posting, but a pleasant tea nonetheless.
