One of famous oolong teas from Anxi is Benshan. This is a light roasted with low oxidation (only 10-15%) high mountain (Gaoshan Benshan) oolong, carefully processed in early October. This tea comes from Xiping village(西坪). Emerald green rolled leaves have slightly orange fragrance. Full-bodied and complex with oily texture and floral sweet aftertaste.

Benshan = Source Mountain

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

„Or perhaps you experiment with different parameters, water, ware, etc. and notice that it performs differently under different circumstances. This type of knowledge is not possible if you only have 25g of a tea. It can really only come with drinking 200, 300, or even 1000g of the same tea.“

„Gyokuro (玉露, Jade Dew) - Gyokuro is a fine and expensive type that differs from Sencha (煎茶) in that it is grown under the shade rather than the full sun for approximately 20 days. The name "Gyokuro" translates as "jade dew" and refers to the pale green color of the infusion. The shading causes the amino acids (Theanine) and caffeine in the tea leaves to increase, while catechins (the source of bitterness in tea, along with caffeine) decreases, giving rise to a sweet taste. The tea also has a distinct aroma.“
