    I just had some Alishan oolong the other day after a long while i did not have any Taiwanese oolong, it is a good tea for spring.

    I notice that James 1st and 2nd brews were somewhat quick, typically i thought this type of rolled oolong need a good 10’s + brew. I wonder if this is because too much puer brewing lately.

    The astringency might be due to Denny “disturbed” the tea leave. That’s my theory and i am sticking to it.

    Spring teas are showing up, hope you guys have a good tea year.

      Hi Mengchiu,

      Thanks for the comment. In regards to my brewing, I suspect you might be onto something. I drink far more pu’erh than oolong and always have to recalibrate when going back to gaoshan especially.

      Cheers,
      -James
