New Jade Oolong tea sample arrived - Spring 2018 - the first impression

Today we were allowed to try the newly arrived Jade Oolong tea sample from a small tea garden of a tea farmer friend.

Cultivar: Cui Yu Harvest time: Spring 2018 Degree of fermentation: 20%

This Jade Oolong has a golden, medium-strong infusion with a very floral, long-lasting aromatic complexity that is reminiscent of fresh floral aromas and tropical fruits which one already comes from Yixing teapot intensely counterflows.

This oolong is grown at 500-850 meters above sea level in the Mingjian village of Nantou County in Taiwan.

For lovers of floral notes, it would be advisable to brew the rolled tea leaves at a low temperature (~ 85 ° C) and not let them steep for too long.

However, if you prefer a stronger finish, you should brew this tea a little hotter and extend the brewing time a little.
