«Youngde Shi You» («Youngde Oil») is made from the spring shoots of the plantation tea of Youngde area (Lincang County).
100 g teacake of medium density, broken effortlessly with fingers into brown flagella of twisted leaves, thin cuttings and reddish tips. The aroma is deep, nutty with dried fruits accent. The infusion is transparent, with a saturated reddish-chestnut shade.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature, nutty-balsamic, with notes of rustic bread and dried fruits. The aroma is deep and viscose, nutty. The taste is full-bodied and velvety, sweetish, a bit astringent, with delicate berry sourness, turning into the soft finish.
Brew tea with hot water (80-95°C, the lower the temperature, the softer the taste) in a gaiwan or a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 6-8 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 5-7 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 seconds) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 9 times.
