What an amazing tea! I love high mountain oolongs and Floating Leaves has many great options, but I hadn’t been such a big fan of baozhongs because they are usually a little too light/mild for me. This one is not! At its apex, it has a rich honeydew melon-like sweetness and a pleasant bitterness that is distinct from the higher elevation oolongs like Lishan. It tastes much greener, as well. I brewed it gong fu in a ~140 ml yixing-style clay pot with ~96C water for 30 seconds each infusion. The first 2 infusions were very floral and not all that rich, but by the third infusion it had opened up a lot! Significant body high feeling, as well. Brews strong for easily 6+ infusions, increasing time slightly after infusion 4.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Cut Grass, Floral, Honeydew, Tannin

I like tea. Basically all types, except smoked lapsang souchong. Favorite tea types: mid-aged sheng puer, high mountain Taiwanese oolongs, aged lighter oolongs, dan cong oolongs, certain black teas. Other than that I’m a well-rounded nice-ish person who does epidemiology for work and outdoors things, especially bikes, for fun, among other things. Also, I think the differences between unglazed clays used for yixing-style pots are figuratively bologna.
