Oolong : Deer Valley, Taiwan

This tea is from Taiwan, the Lu Gu Valley, where deer abound.

The area is ideal for tea growing lots of mist and green environment.
This tea yields several brews and is extremely well but minimally oxidized.

Color: Florally creamy, slight overtones of green

Smell: light yellow, clear and shiny

Taste: creamy, fresh and clean

Body: thin bodied

Liquor: Light

Stay: Clean and clean finish

Leaf: medium sized, 3 leaves with stem, machine picked

Conclusion: Pleasant, mild tasting tea, for milder days.
Excellent summer tea.
The tea yields different results with longer brewing time - a shape shifter.
Even and smooth caffeine content with no unusual spikes.
