Twisted balls of various jade greens reveal an aroma of sweet honeysuckle and gardenia. A fresh aroma that reminds you of a tropical jungle. The initial aroma is creamy for a second and then changes to garden notes. I’m seriously surprised at the 4 – 5 minute steep time on the package. Granted I always drink my oolong gong fu style now but that just seems like way too much time. Also if you are steeping with a gaiwan you’ll want it cooler. Almost burnt my fingers trying to pick it up at this temp. The longer steep reveals some mineral notes and astringency. Not heavy astringency but enough to make it not completely pleasant. The garden notes and floral notes are a bit muted by the slight bitterness you find when it first hits your palate. But when brewed with proper gaiwan style the tea really shines. The mineral notes make your mouth water for more. I’ve licked the most delicious wet rock. The veggies garden notes and the floral notes of gardenia. The way you brew your tea matters.

2021 sipdown no. 99

Polished this one off yesterday and it’s lovely. I was busy and didn’t write any real notes, but went through three steeps and recall enjoying each one.

1st steep: 190° F, 3 minutes
2nd steep: 190° F, 4.5 minutes
3rd steep: 190° F, 6 minutes

I’ll have to add this to my next CS order.

Tossed a few of these leaves into a mug this afternoon and drank as a semi-grandpa style thing while weighing stuff this afternoon – you know it’s a calm Friday when the biggest thing on your plate is weighing stuff…

This is good – not anything exceptional but I like the smooth medium bodied creamy florals throughout the cup, and hints of coconut/tonka. It’s a greener oolong without feeling green (if that makes sense) but it has that same type of fresh feeling. It’s the kind of thing I could drink a MASSIVE Western style pot of over the span of a TV show or movie or something and just simply not realize how much I’d consumed because it’s so smooth and easy drinking!
