91 Tasting Notes
I steeped the tea in a gaiwan with recently boiled water. After a quick wash and “leaf awakening”, I was first a little overwhelmed with how green the Oolong was. My first cup helped me set my pallete and only after that was I able to truly appreciate what I was tasting (I’m still new to active tasting)!
The liquor itself is a bright hay color and gives off a vegetal, grassy aroma at first. After a moment I was able to detect some citrus notes (the bergamot, it seems). This tea has an astringency I found quite enjoyable and has a refreshing citrusy, lightly sour after taste that lingers pleasantly. The tea itself is very light in general, which adds to the refreshing flavor of the overall tea.
I quite enjoyed this tea and am eager to try it again!
