Oolong «Mao Xie» («Hairy Crab») was made in late autumn of 2018 by qing xiang technology (light fermentation, moderate heating).
In appearance: small, yellow-green pellets of twisted tea shoots. The aroma is intensive and fresh, spicy-herbaceous. The liquor is transparent, with a light greenish-yellow shade.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is fresh, spicy-herbaceous with floral and fruity notes. The aroma is tender, floral-herbaceous. The taste is full-bodied and mild, silky, sweetish, with a fine fruity sourness and spicy nuances, turning into the lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (80-85°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of celadon or porous clay. The proportion is 6 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.
Oolong «Mao Xie» is a good choice for daily tea breaks: full-bodied and mild taste, both relaxing and refreshing effect.
