1. View

The dry leaves are big and have a vivid green hue. The brew has great clarity and transparency with a very fresh yellow color. The open leaves are big and have red edges, sign of a good oxidation.  Lots of insect bites on buds and leaves are clear signs that this plantation doesn't use pesticides.

2. Scents

The dry leaves smell like fresh lavender! The brew's scents are fresh and fruity with notes of peaches. The feeling is natural, light and elegant.

3. Taste

Despite the apparent lightness of these 3 grams of Oolong, tasting this tea reveals all its power. The beginning is very sweet and light, though. There's also a nice coating and freshness in the mouth. Swallowing is a real pleasure. It's so smooth and silky. But then there is this powerful and deep feeling coming from the throat. A wave of energy seems unleashed. And there is this wonderful, sweet and 'spring' fresh aftertaste in the mouth! And all this only using 3 grams of tea in competition mode (6 minutes brew)!

Da Yu Ling is indeed the King of High Mountain Oolongs!

Brewing tip: to enjoy the light and elegant scents, use a baotai teapot or gaiwan for brewing. And don't use too many leaves!
