Brewing this ~100ml, with a wash, 5g (sample), at around 190F
Colour is this very clear yellow/gold, looks fantastic (pic: http://imgur.com/H4tY18b).
I’m doing standard infusion time: 5s + 3s for each infusion.
I normally dislike wuyi oolong teas, due to the heavy mineral/rock taste, but this one is quite smooth and good.
The mineral taste is rather soft, and it isn’t rash but instead complementing. There is a sort of pumpkin taste to it as well as chamomile. It has a flower taste to it too. There is no sense of acidity or acridness from this tea. There is a slight fruit flavour, I would say reminiscent of apricot.
Really refreshing taste, but very weak aftertaste — you lose the taste of the tea after around like 5 seconds, so it’s advised to ‘swirl’ it inside your mouth before swallowing, savouring the flavour. It is a bit ‘one dimensional’ in taste, as it’s not particularly complex nor does it evolve throughout the steeping session (5th steep at the moment), but it’s refreshing and it is a pleasant surprise to one who generally dislikes wuyi oolongs
