Cultivar: Jinxuan Oolong

Harvested by hand: on October 27th, 2017

Origin: Feng Huang, Dong Ding, Central Taiwan Elevation: 700 meters

Process: Hungshui Oolong, medium roasted.

1. View

The dry leaves are mat dark green in color. This greenness shows that the roast wasn't too powerful and has preserved the freshness of the leaves. The 6 minutes competition brew is dark orange. The open leaves are soft to the touch and their fresh colors are still there.

2. Scents

The dry scents are like Kelogg's rice krispies! The first brew has rich and nice roast and toasty scents. In the next brews, ripe fruit notes also appear.

3. Taste

The Jinxuan cultivar has milder and lighter taste than Qingxin Oolong. This stays true when the leaves are roasted. It has a nice sweetness and lightness that makes brewing it quite easy. The aftertaste isn't as powerful, but there's less also risk overbrewing it. And this tea also very well balanced in terms of roast and freshness.

Conclusion:  it's a very good tea to improve on a Hung Shui Dong Pian (Si Ji Chun cultivar). And it's a tea that will continue to improve with time.
