A small initiation into Amber Oolong from Mountain Tea.
I decided since I have not committed my 110ml 'Dragon Egg' Yixing pot to a particular tea yet, to brew up 5 grams in 'the egg' and 5 grams in my 120ml gaiwan. Temperature at 195f.
I cannot tell if they both tasted the same or if the steeps in the Yixing have a slight mineral taste, but I was not unpleased with how it tasted in my Dragon-Egg and until now nothing has tasted good in that pot, to the point I've regretted buying it just a bit! So this is a nice pairing perhaps.
Compared the colors of the rinse and two steeps and it seemed equally pleasing to my eye.
Mountain Tea is new to me and because of their generosity I will have a chance to try this Amber Oolong for many weeks to come. I can imagine this being a tea I depend upon this coming fall.
Their description of it is lovely to read, so I will share that now...
