This Oolong has a lightly roasted taste very similar to many Formosas, this makes a wonderful mid morning or early afternoon tea do to a subtle rich, sweet flavor that is more common to darker Oolongs.
I woke up on my coach this morning after a night of being a college student and realized that this weekend i have dissipated from my tea drinking habits do to be super busy. waking up on the coach i realised i needed to enjoy a kup of tea in which would counterballance the uncomfort i am in do to the coach. i decided on this wonderful oolong since i havent enjoyed it in so long. i used my newly purchased ceramic pot that also includes a one serving 8 ounce tea mug. this tea has a wonderful buttery texture once it starts to cool like most other Oolongs.
Water temp: 185 degrees F
Steeping time: 3 minutes with leafs free in tea pot. (every steeping i add 30 seconds)
the color of a nicely brewed Da Hong Pao is a rich gold almost close to a rising golden sun.
this tea is definately a great way to end my weekend and a wonderful way to kick off this next week.
since it is sunday, as a college student it is the day of homework and i recently found a Tea house up in Crested Butte Colorado which is just 30 minute drive away. So im going to venture up there after this Cup of tea and check the place out while doing some homework. Wahooo!!
