I received a sample of this tea from another order, and I liked it so much I bought another 50g of it! I've tried several light oolongs from this site, but the Phoenix Valley Shanlinxi is still my favorite so far. It has a heavy floral nose, smooth mouthfeel without any bitterness, and a slightly sweet aftertaste. I can brew this about 4 times before losing its enjoyability.
This is not a bad tea. It's refreshing and has a nice mouthfeel to it. But, I definitely agree with Joanne in that I couldn't get more than 2 steeps out of it without losing a lot out of it. If I were to recommend an alternative Qinxin oolong that's also in Nantou, it would definitely be the Chi Lai Mountain Oolong. In fact, it's surprising to me that this one is $1 more expensive than the Chi Lai Mountain one!
This tea managed to surprise even my 11-year old (who is in that phase where he is nonchalant about everything ) when he took a sip. Soft, powdery floral aroma and taste. The fragrance wafted through my apartment and lasted for hours. Even the wet leaves looked beautiful! My only gripe is that it only lasted 2-3 steeps - is this the same for everyone else?
