Gongfu style for 15secs
First steep not much going on really!
second steep and the leaves havent even unfurled – this one for 30 secs – milky aroma & quite a ‘hard water’ taste? like there isnt much of a jade oil thing going on. Slight vegetal taste, and a tiny aroma of sweetness, like candy floss.
Astringency started to appear, and a smell that reminds me of greeness & kale.
3rd steep much the same but less flavour.
Its more reasonable at $35/100g than my other Jade Oolongs, and compared to the other ‘Iron goddess’ I have tried which was heaped with so much Jasmine it made me feel sick, this one is a lot better. It doesnt seem to have the magic taste that my Da Yu Lings have (but they are a lot more expensive), but it has a nice head feeling, so im happy.
and happy that I can try other Iron Goddess now without worry about the added jasmine!
edit* did a much longer steep and managed to extract some jade magic out of this one. I like it!
