1. View

The dry leaves are not big and have a green/blue hue. The brew has great clarity and transparency with a very fresh yellow color. The open leaves are big and have light red edges, sign of a 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 and flowers. 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 and flowery aroma.

On a second occasion, brewing this tea in a zhuni teapot, I had made 2 brews during the afternoon and wanted to make a third in the evening. This third brew should have been lighter than the first 2, but it clearly kept me awake much longer than I had bargained for! Beware of this tea's power!

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