Floral with a bit of natural spice notes this is a nice straight-up oolong!

It’s very springy. Quite floral but in a good way :)

1/20/14 Evening pot. 3g/6oz/190F/3min. This finishes off my sample of this. The tea brews a pellucid pale gold green, with a heady aroma of clover honey and spice. It is light in the mouth, smooth and with an astringency that fades as the tea cools. The changes in the taste as the temperature changed were lovely, from a bright ping in the first sips to a sweet dryness in the last.

Wonderful review!


On an interesting note, I met a woman at tea club this past Wednesday who had recently been in Thailand on a tea industry trip. Apparently Thai grown teas are still extremely uncommon on the western market.

I brew it in Gongfu style, very smooth oolong tea with a hint of bitterness. The aftertaste is sweet and pleasant. Highly recommend if you like tea with sweet-flowery aftertaste.
