Leaf: nice tightly rolled green oolong. I’m guessing a kind of TGY?. Nice “flowery” aroma (tho not overly pungent) escaped the opened 7g package.

Method: 3.5g + 3oz water around 90C/194F. Time: 30s, 1min, 3min, 5min, 10min.

Taste: like a gaoshan/high mountain oolong i think, without any “egg-flavor”(as i call it) = yay, just a nice “green”-oolong.  Not much astringency/tannin in front of tongue but very small. Mostly just flavor. Did very well in re-infusions. Not much astringency was present. Aroma was still present, less than the opened package “hit”, i think maybe its similar to honeysuckle flower, but i havent done any side-by-side to be sure.

Overall: very nice everyday oolong for my taste. Low astringency, just flavor, no “foody-ness”, nice aroma, can be reinfused many times.

[might add a video, if i piece together the clips]
