Oolong “Gao Xiang Xue Pian” (“Snow flakes - high aroma”) was made in November 2019 (moderate fire).
In appearance: large (up to 9 cm in length), brown flagella of twisted leaves with thin, long cuttings. The fragrance is intensive, spicy-floral. The liquor is transparent, with a shade of white grapes.
The bouquet of ready-made tea is multifaceted and vivid, spicy-floral, with woody, herbaceous, nutty and berry notes. The aroma is tender and high, spicy-floral. The taste is full-bodied and sweet, a bit spicy, with a fine woody tartness, berry sourness and lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (80-90°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 4-5 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 repeat this method up to 9-10 times.
“Gao Xiang Xue Pian” is a great choice for those who love the delicate floral component in Chaozhou oolongs.
