Rate No. 4

Harvest: Spring
Origin: Anxi County, Fujian, China
Type: Blended Oolong
Approximate Altitude: 700m

Brewed western style 4gr in 300ml @95 degrees c for two minutes with 30 sec increments.

1st Steep brews a clear tea with a hint of green.
Aroma of green grass and some vegetal notes.
Taste is sweet, asparagus, some cabbage and faint liquorice.

2nd and 3rd steeps are more green in colour. The taste and aroma doesn’t change too much.

4th and 5th Steep are more yellow in colour. Aroma is more muted. The taste however is still holding up. Maybe a little less intense, but still good to drink.

Nice sweet flavoured tea.

First thing I noticed when warming up the leaf is a beautiful sweet baked cake aroma. The first, second and third steep is a naturally sweet grassy tone; and once it hit the back of the throat it has a great lingering sweetness that will stay with you through the whole tea session. Steep four through eight has a slightly burnt sugar/toffee and more of a grassy tone to it. Beautiful tea that you will not regret trying!

I could start a religion to this tea. Specifically, the second steeping of this tea. So far, I’ve only been brewing it western style but I’m excited to try a gongfu session with it now that I’ve bought some more. This is a really delicious tea with a really amazing, lingering mouthfeel. It’s very velvety, warm, and just takes over your whole mouth.

The tea is naturally sweet with just a touch of ginseng (it’s worth noting that it was roasted with ginseng, and doesn’t have actual ginseng in it). I don’t really taste fruit in this, but everything else described by the company is present. It’s really one of my favorite teas through all its infusions, and even retains its nuances when cold. (If I get through three or fewer infusions in a night, I usually throw some hot water in with the leaves and pop the whole thing into the fridge for an indefinite amount of time).
