From Yunnan Sourcing

This lightly roasted tea is made from Premium Grade Anxi Tie Guan Yin from Gan De village. The tea was roasted for about 6 hours at a low temperature of about 50C. This light roasting gives the Tie Guan Yin a softer almost sweet taste to it.

There is a slight milk aroma (nai xiang) that is present when brewed.

My rule of thumb these days is to always rinse any rolled ball oolongs. Brewed at 200˚F in my 80ml gaiwan.

1st infusion: (15s)
Really pale fawn-coloured liquor. Much lighter than the first time I brewed this tea, it tastes delicate, a lightly roasted version of the buttery green Tie Guan Yin and nowhere near a dark roasted Wuyi oolong. Heavenly.

2nd infusion: (20s)
Liquor is now a pale yellow tinged with brown. Perfect balance between the buttery and the roasty minerally oolongs I love. Easily a new favourite. Need to buy more!

3rd infusion: (35s)
Slightly overbrewed but still good. Colour is paler than 2nd infusion. Still tastes buttery

I got 6 infusions out of it before it got too light.

I have started rinsing them, too. Not only does it help open them up, but there are some “off” flavors that can be put aside with a quick wash.
