|First one of the year|
This Taiwanese Oolong is also from the Alishan region and grown above 1300m of altitude. It's harvested like all the other samples in the winter of 2011. The colour of the brew was much more intense and darker than the previos tea I reviewed.
|Lovely, sweet Oolong tea|
During the second and 3rd steep it would get less sweet but more refreshing and floral. It was very refreshing during such a warm and hot day. I enjoyed every little sip. Every steep I would pour some tea in this beautiful yixing teacup to let it cool down a little and it would develop such an intense, sweet taste. The 5th steep I poured some colder water in it and let it steep for around 20-30 min and when I poured the tea into my cup and tasted it, it felt like I was drinking peaches. That was the only thing
|My new handmade yixing teacup, isn't it pretty?|
|So clear but so full of taste|
PS: Sorry, the lay-out got 1 big mess for one reason. Please be patient with me!
