pkg……………………..dry leaves…………..go!…………………….2min…………………and drink it

and 3min…………….drinked……………..another 3min……….4min………………..drunk & curious
pics a bit blurry, having jello hands lately… just a couple marginally white balanced, sorry, i’m kinda out of it.

Leaf: opened package & receive a strong smell like “dark chocolate“, ~8g leaf.

Method: 4g, ~4oz water, ~80-90C in cup, ~ 2min, 3, 3, 4. Other 3.5g went for ~3oz or less & 3min, 4, 4.

Taste: nice strong flavor, roasted dark oolong (not to the point of charcoal flavors), maybe i’d say burnt sugar?(speculating) , i didnt quite sense chocolate + some “green oolong” flavors = nice mix. I cant really define the flavors but i enjoyed the balance. The “green” tannins come out when steeped longer, makes for some astringency. Not really “green”, but …a hint of greenness… like adding pepper to food. With the longer infusions, you get the astringency & tannins, but also a nice, pretty long lasting sweet aftertaste everytime – take that you fickle pu-erhs…. A bit less “rounded” than i imagined from my first time with qilan, did not find the “silk” i remember – then again, i may have not found the optimum infusion parameters, and i’m not sure the notes from my first qilan were completely right.

Overall: ok but the variegated flavor keeps it exciting.

WordPress editor can be quite irritating especially when not in the mood for its crap. I asked them why there’s no button for changing font size and i got some nonsense answers…so you have to go in the html editing mode and add some silly script that changed from last year… ok? … but theres a friggin “insert more” <-wtf is this for & a stupid “quote button” ; the underline button is not next to the other style buttons. there’s a stupid erase formatting button, when they could’ve put that in the formating dropbox. yah dont get me started mmkay…
