Here we have your oolong tea brewed hot with your best parameters, then poured into bottle and stored in the fridge.
#1 was the high mountain king of oolong. <SO-SO>
next day, tea is cold indeed, seems that mild astringency is #1 sensation, floweryness seems lost (maybe coldness impairs the feel). as its getting towards room temp, floweryness seems to make a comeback but not as crisp and nice,
not much other flavors, taste is rather dull.
#2: cold high top oolong. < GOOD COLD>
good flavor, mild astringency replaced by the ‘roasted’ type of flavor, and extra flavors i cant describe.
reminds of one of the bottled oolongs i tried… might be the oi ocha from ito en… but mine is better for less astringency and more flavor.
this one tastes good cold.
