Thank you DERK! I really wanted to try this one, and am thankful for swapping to alleviate the problem of getting samples.I did this semi gong fu, though it was closer to Western at 2 minutes. I really don’t have too much to add, but it’s texture heaven. Heavy on the creamy and ghee butter profile with some florals in an evergreen direction, maybe hyacinth in some ways. It’s actually similar to the Milk and Honey oolong I got from Floating Leaves, and it’s super smooth and welcoming. I was able to brew it over and over for about five rounds and gave me impressions of sunrise over dewy mountains.
The later steeps were a little bit more subdued as I improvised based on how open the leaves were and the changing aroma, but there were fruity green traces. I probably should have done it again, but it’s I got the creamy butter profile I wanted from it. I’m not sure how else to experiement since longer steeps give a more rounded body. I’ll finish it quickly, though I won’t rate it quite yet. I definitely like it.
