Gives a pretty bright and thick floral taste. Floral density ends with tangy saltiness. The aroma of dry and washed tea leaves easily passes into the taste. Organoleptic properties of the tea are very steady and practically do not change their profile through all infusions. Classical oolong tea of Taiwan cultivar (TRES #17).

Having tried a few Thai oolongs before, I sort of knew what to expect here—something along the lines of a Taiwanese oolong, but with more fruity “oomph!” And that’s exactly what I got. Every aspect of this reminded me of a high mountain Qing Xin, but with that irresistible Northern Thailand grapiness.

The liquor brewed up green-to-gold, as any good greener oolong does. Not sure what (if any) roast was done to this, but it didn’t come through in the aroma or the taste. I sipped nothing but butter and yams laced with marigolds. It had just about every note I expected (and delighted in) from a Northern Thai oolong.

A second infusion turned up more of the same, only dialed up to eleven! After the ball-rolled leaves unfurled from their shyness, there was nothing . . . uh . . . “soft” about these stems anymore. At least, not in terms of palatial delivery.
