Oolong «Mei ren» («Beauty»), Winter harvest of 2018.
In appearance: large, maroon-brown leaves of varying degrees of twist and thin, silvery buds. The fragrance is intensive, floral with a woody accent. The liquor is transparent, with a golden almond hue.
The bouquet of ready-made tea is bright and multifaceted, spicy-floral, with notes of fresh berries, wood, and honey. The fragrance is high and tender, berry-floral. The taste is full-bodied, silky and sweetish, with a refined woody tartness, berry sourness, spicy nuances, and lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (85-90°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 5-6 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 5 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1 second), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 10 times.
Oolong «Mei ren» is a wonderful ceremonial tea with a multifaceted taste, charming aroma and a festive mood!
