Tea

Steeping Instructions: (For Brewing In A Gaiwan) 3g of Tea – 100ml of 85 Degree (C) Water. Rise Once before the first steep. Steeping this way I managed to do 6 steeps. My first steep was 1 minute long and then from there I just added 10-30 seconds on for each steep as I went on. (This might not be the perfect way of doing it but it’s what works for me)

The liquor of this tea is a pale golden colour, In my first two steeps I was hit with the deliciously creamy / slightly butter like notes that I love in a Milk Oolong (I honestly can’t get enough of them) they weren’t as strong as some Milk Oolongs that I have had but definitely in my top five. As my steeps went on the oolong slowly started to get a little more vegtal and a slight peach note came through in aftertaste that was absoulty magical. I wouldn’t push this further than 6 steeps, I did a seventh and I really think that psuhed it to far becuase it got very bitter (sometimes that can be nice but thos time around it was to much for me) – This has a smooth creamy mouthfeel and it’s really refreshing. I can imagine it would be delicous cold brewed as well.

Overall Teacup Rating: 5/5
