Great delicate oolong

Medium gold color. Medium full mouth feel. Delicate, slightly spicy aroma and taste. Very pleasant.

From an oolong fan

I got this as a present for myself, having never had it. I love the flavor, somewhat floral in the the front followed by a slightly sweet back. Brewed this western style and have gotten 3 infusions per serving. Very pleased.

A premium find!

A bold complex floral and scent with a flavor that's smooth and mellow, concluding with a sweet lingering finish. I've steeped each cup multiple times with pleasing results.

Yum, yum!

This was part of a gift for my son in law’s birthday! It was a hit! Thanks! I love giving Smith Tea for the packaging and for the consistency of the tea flavors.

Reserve No. 106: The 6th release in our Reserve Series.

Preparation

For Western brewing, this tea can be brewed for single infusions using 3 grams of tea per 8 ounces of 190 degree water and steeped for three minutes.

For gaiwan brewing, place 7 grams of tea leaves into 150 ml (5 ounce) gaiwan. Bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Fill your gaiwan to the top and let the leaves steep for 10-20 seconds. Set the strainer on top of the decanter and pour the tea out of the gaiwan with the lid slightly askew, without allowing the tea leaves to escape. Serve into small cups and repeat this process at least 4-5 times and notice how the tea leaves change in flavor over each infusion. Learn more about gaiwan service here
