Its nice and hot today, 93F inside,
…and here i am drinking hot tea… addiction sure does it to yah 🙂

Leaf: dark. smells like a dark oolong.

the pictures are of the entire 5g of tea.

Method: 5g in 4oz + 180F water x ~ 40sec. then 40s, then 1min. or something like that. i didnt take notes.

Taste: first i smelled a nice “nutty” oolong then tasted it as well + some roasted sensations on the palate/tongue. Almost no astringency detectable in this infusion. There is no tobacco leaf/no heavy roasted-charcoal (shui-xian)/no green feel.
The first dark oolong i like… aside from that Qilan i keep re-dreaming about… one day, oh yes, one day ALL YOUR QILAN ARE BELONG TO ME.
By the 3rd infusion or hotter water i get some astringency and some present aftertaste but its not bad.

Overall: like it !
