Infusion: 3-4g in 200ml for 2-3min.@90-100deg. C
Dry Leaf Aroma: subtle, herbaceous, hints of apricot and sweet melon;
Wet Leaf Aroma: butter and mildly floral;
Liquor: pale yellow colour with faint almond, nutty aroma;
Mouthfeel: smooth, viscous, creamy, mildly stimulating, peppery, with a sweet and mildly bitter finish;
Taste: floral, mildly herby, hints of orchid, with a refreshing aftertaste and minerality on the tip of the tongue;
Opinion: I believe this is an unscented, milk oolong, its aroma and flavor is more muted that precious milk oolongs that I’ve sampled. For that it is a much more refined and pleasant tea to drink.
