Mild and fresh oolong

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

After steaming in the gaiwan it produces mild and fresh smell of oolong tea. Infusion has light green colour, it is obvious that it is low oxidised oolong. Smell is mild and fresh. Taste is pleasant, full with taste of flowers, but very mild and fresh. I can recommend this tea, considering the price of $6 per 100g I am, giving 4 stars.

140 ml gaiwan, 7g of tea, water 90°C, steeped for 45sec and gradually prolonged, up to 8 tasty infusions

Greener oolong for a good price

5 stars 3.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Dry leaves are yellow-green. Strong and aromatic odor. The infusion is luminously yellow-green. The taste is strong, grassy with floral aftertaste.

Water 90 degrees. I start to infuse about 1 minute. The second infusion is about 30 seconds faster. Then you can prolong infusions as per taste.

Quotes - Oolong


„There is also knowledge that you can gain from drinking the same tea over and over again that you cannot from sampling. This may involve the tea changing on you – a traditionally stored puerh gradually losing its storage taste, for example. Or, it can just be that you start noticing nuances that were there, but were not necessarily obvious the first few times you try it.“
