Feng Huang Dan Cong (Phoenix Oolong) .Dobra TeaAugust 13, 2007 at 8:27 am | Posted in Dark oolong, Oolong Tea, Tea Reviews | Leave a comment
Dobra Tea ~$2.5 /oz
208F yielded a better infusion, somehow less green astringency. (smoking crack again)
190F, 3 min: roasted, + mild specific phoenix oolong flavor of flowery-orangey(for lack of better comparison), followed by a green-like leaf astringency…. hmmm not roasted enough it seems.
01 min wash discarded.
15 sec nut -> roasted -> flowery orangey…
30 sec same + greenish astringency
30 sec same less flavor, more greenish astringency
If infused less leaf same water, flavor and astringency is lower…
Id give it a 4.7/7 due to not enough flavor power(-1), astringency(-1), doesnt hold well to >2 infusions(-.3)
dry leaf looks dark enough, no smell,
after infusion the wet leaf reveals its medium-oxidized self, with many green leaves.
leaf is folded along the y axis, not hard to unwrap, not as tight as the dan cong from zhong guo cha.
