Brewing Suggestions:

To prepare this tea in the traditional gongfu style use a gaiwan or Yixing pot and 6 grams of tea per 100ml of water at 212°F. Steep for 20 seconds. Reduce time to 15 seconds for the second steep and then increase with each subsequent steep.

For an 8 oz cup, use between 3-5 grams of tea, about a heaping teaspoon. Pour water at 212°F (100° C) over the leaves and steep for approximately 90 seconds. Always remember to adjust steeping time depending on water temperature, amount of tea you have and personal flavor preference. Increase time and temperature slightly with each infusion.

    It’s good, really good actually. The roast is stronger than I prefer, but not overpowering. Don’t let my preferences skew your opinion, though, because a lot of people prefer stronger roasts.

    The aroma is really pungent with a combination of toasty and a little milky on the lid of the gaiwan and brewed liquor, and the characteristic floral and vegetal aspects expected from the wet leaves.

    The taste is soothing, toasty, and while the roast is in the center, counter to my previous experience with Alishan winter roasts, nothing is hidden behind it – it’s very robust, with strong floral and fruity flavor.

    The steeps evolved consistently, and were enjoyable from first to last. Which was around 10 steeps in total.

    Overall, this is everything you’d want from a Taiwanese Gaoshan, and at just over $10/2oz, you really can’t go wrong.
