I brewed this tea up a ton of different ways – 8g, 5g, per 100ml, 208 F, 180 F, but I just couldn’t find a way to brew it that would live up to my expectations. With oolongs, I prefer those that have staying power when it comes to resteeping using gongfu method.
This tea however pretty much dies entirely by steep 3 being completely overtaken by the mineral foretaste.
It has a fantastic almond and sour cherry butter cookie scent on the nose, but this doesn’t last very long. Perhaps I was expecting too much from this, or being too greedy, but the fact that you really only get 2 steeps out of this per session is very disappointing for me.
Perhaps if you’re the type of person to enjoy very short sessions, it may be better.
Flavors: Almond, Cherry, Pastries, Wet Rocks
