4g brewed in a 60mL gaiwan.

Smell and taste are reminiscent of aged sheng funnily enough… I think I would call this a hybrid between oolong and aged sheng.

I can taste the age for sure, which comes through in leather and wood. Subtle hints of fruit and florals linger in the background. The wet leaves smell sweet, medicinal, woody and leathery. It reminds me of a dry forest in autumn or an old library of leather bound books (but no mustiness per-say) both in smell and taste.

Mouthfeel is thick in a gaiwan, but I’m sure it will be thicker in Yixing clay. This tea will steep many times with a nice qi.

Overall a must have for any tea lover, especially those who enjoy fine oolongs and puerhs.

I’m Robbie!

I’m 22 with a B.Sc in chemistry, currently doing a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry, both in University College Dublin.

Tea has become one of the most important parts of my life. I drink it almost everyday, and it grounds me whenever I need grounding, calms me when I need calming, and entertains me when I’m in need of entertaining.

I drink mostly oolong and puerh tea, sometimes green tea (in spring and summer), rarely white and yellow tea, and occasionally black tea (it comes in phases). I have a deep love for traditional oolongs, yancha and puerh (shou and sheng) in particular! :D
