271 – golden oolong by Ito en. Review.
Ru Yao dragon teapot, gongfucha.
Dry leaf: fruity, floral.
Wet leaf: fruity, floral, peachy, green grapes.
1x short rinse
Light steep: I taste/smell; light
—→ cream, peaches, apricots, floral, smoke, green grapes.
Medium steep: I taste/smell; the same as light steep. (Weird)
Heavy steep: I taste/smell; strong smoke.
strong to almost overpowering —→ bitterness, green grapes, peaches, apricots, floral, cream. Very strong mouth drying effect.
All in all, a wonderful tea! Nice aroma, tastes, and cha qi. However the dry mouth effect is creepy. I rate a 99.
Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Cream, Floral, Grapes, Peach, Smoke
