1. Bright and fresh dry green leaves with few stems. The brew's color is a bright and shiny yellow. It has a very good transparency.
2. The dry floral scent are light, fresh and flowery. The brew smells like fresh butter and spring. I even had scents of marshmallows!
3. The taste is sweet and powerful The aftertaste tastes is well structured and lasts for a long time.
These leaves come from one of the first harvests of Qingxin Oolong in ZhangShuHu after a particularly long wait during early spring. It has all the characteristics of a very good High Mountain Oolong, the power of Ali Shan and a very reasonable price.
Wow! Incredible. Pleasant tea from start to finish, this Ali Shan Oolong has all the complexity one could wish for in a tea so highly regarded. Honestly, the different tastes in this tea’s bouquet are so hard to pin down, so perfectly balanced and “blended,” that words escape any description. Yet, to approximate, the memory that comes to mind is a gentle kiss on a Spring morning. There is a dew-like quality to this oolong, something between tulips and rosewater. A blessing beyond explanation.
