Description

Hong Shui Oolong Tea Cake is an organic artisan tea cake. Hong Shui Oolong Tea Cake is a fine Taiwanese tea that was handpicked and pressed by artisan tea crafter Mr. Yu, it has been oxidized between 30-40%, allowing for a rich, complex and full flavor.

Tea cakes are crafted for their unique ability to cultivate and achieve complex flavors through manipulating oxidation levels and time.

Simply break off a piece of the cake with a tea knife, and allow for one rinse, then steep as usual. Once steeped, the fragrant lush roasted aroma fills your senses, and at first sip your whole mouth is filled with a roasted sweetness, mineral notes, and full smooth taste. Red Jade White Tea is a luxurious Taiwanese white tea you will enjoy to discover and appreciate through multiple infusions.

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
200ml
90°C
2 - 3 min

I've tried this with as many different different brewing temperatures and steep times as I can think of (gong fu style of course) and I just can't seem to eliminate the bitterness and astringency which tends to make me feel a bit sick after drinking. Never experienced this with another tea. Not sure if I got a different batch than other people citing how smooth it is. Not my cup of tea (pun intended)

The taste of this tea is very pleasant and well rounded a little bit creamy with a light roasted flavour .. the tea cake unfortunately was so dried out that it was practically dust and was impossible to strain the dust out of the tea after steeping ... it wasn’t a particularly cheap cake either so I can only give two stars due to high cost and being dried out due to improper storage, was quite disappointing unfortunately

An unique and delicious fragrance and flavor. Similar to the best "Black Beauty #8" that I've had from Telyra. This oolong is heavily oxidized, but the resulting tea is so very smooth. Love it!

Let's face it, the people who've already reviewed this can do a far better job than I in explaining the undertones and mouth feel.

I will tell you , it's very refreshing. . . .very smooth, and a nice back to sit back and relax enjoying life :-)

The color is a deep reddish brown . . .Very nice :-)
