drank Monkey-Picked Oolong by Teavana
61 tasting notes

A coworker brought this in to work but teavana is now closed so I just had to gaiwan it:
(Gongfu style): 90C, 10 second rinse, 10s, 10s, 15s, 25s, 30s. All steeps had varying levels of melon. The rinse and the first steep taste of honeysuckle/sugarcane, its pleasant. Second steep is more of an orchid and ever so slightly milky taste. Then on it is orchid. Tastes good though! Not quite as drying as western style.
(Western style): 3 minutes, 85C. Easily re-steepable, has a pleasant melon flavor and mouth-drying quality to it

Flavors: Honeysuckle, Melon, Sugarcane

MD-PhD Student, new to gongfu brewing and serious tea tasting but excited to learn. My favorite kinds of tea are oolongs and both Chinese & Japanese greens.
