A good, dependable, if slightly underwhelming semi-fermented oolong.
Nose – Light. I get light stone fruit, floral notes and sugarcane. Very slight oolong butteryness and oats. Fairly characteristic of a ‘green oolong’.
Palate – Subtle and well balanced. Quite fresh and vibrant with light but lingering buttery sweetness with a touch of grassy zing. Handles three steepings, with a deeper, more vegetal flavour developing in the second steep and some of the more delicate notes dropping off by the third.
Colour – light golden green
Overall: Very pleasant but slightly unremarkable. A nice everyday drop and one for those who like their oolongs ‘green’.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Sugarcane
