This tea came from Myanmar (Burma). From the plantation, located at an altitude of about 2000 meters.

Dry leaves aroma is intense. Flavor is sweet and floral with savour of berries. It becomes more intense in the warmed gaiwan. Rinsed tea aroma has notes of raspberry and apples.The liquor possessed a light, subtle foreground taste, caramel and floral in flavour.

The tea reveals wide taste spectrum in aftertaste, here is creamy floral-berry wave with tones of safflower and chrysanthemum. By the fourth-fifth infusion sugar sweetness appears on the back of the tongue. Caramel taste becomes stronger and you start to feel mellow milk flavour.

Probably, there is no need to say that this oolong confidently holds more than seven steepings. But it is certainly worth mentioning how beautiful changes the tea taste from first to subsequent infusions, delighting with new tones. Steeped leaves smells with raspberry caramel and apples.

veeeery soft and pleasant light oolong :)

In dry form, the aroma of the leaf is pleasant, deep, sweet. There are some confectionery notes. I feel that the tea is not simple. And in general, all the flavors of this tea are good. In serving pitcher it is fragrant with flowers, this smell is stupefying. Piala smells light sweetness at first, and then sea freshness.

The main thing in his taste is butteriness, and that this can be understood only by trying a tea of ​​this level. Herbaceous floral notes combined with this oiliness and create a flavor profile of this tea. It should be noted that it varies considerably from steep to steep, to feel these metamorphoses - a separate pleasure.

In my opinion, Ruan Zhi is the brilliant of collection of oolongs of this site. The tea is always brewed well. I gave it the name "Selfish". This tea you want to share only with yourself and the closest people.

The smell from chahai after the first steep immediately speaks about the nobility and versatility of this tea. Milky-vanilla notes, coupled with a rich floral bouquet, do not allow to fill it with water again, you want to breathe a little more from gaiwan and only then make a new steep.

Depending on the water and its temperature, the taste and aroma of the oolong can vary significantly, but it will always be interesting. It will always vary from sweetish-vanilla-milky to soft-mineral, tart walnut with a rich aftertaste on the tougher. In the same sequence, it changes with increasing water temperature.

Qi is soothing, relaxing. An excellent version of evening tea.
