Tea Review: Jing Tea Shop Ba Xian Oolong Tea

Jing Tea Shop Ba Xian Oolong Tea

Jing Tea Shop Ba Xian Oolong Tea comes from Feng Huang in Guang Dong province.  Dry leaves are composed of the black tea leaves alongside with some dark brown and green leaves. They are curly and quite long which is quite expected for dancong oolong teas. The smell of the dry leaves is fruity with a touch of spiciness in the back.
I brewed it Gongfu way by using about 5 grams of tea. With the first infusion, it cupped out pale yellow liquor with great clarity. Quite sweet no bitterness at all. The taste offers fruity and citrusy tones but not so strong for the first infusion.
I kept it a little longer than usual for the second infusion to get a stronger brew. The liquor was more orangish this time and flavors were stronger. Yet still not as strong as I want it to be. The aftertaste was quite short both in the first and second infusions but left a nice touch of lemony taste in the throat and back of my mouth.
Third and fourth infusions were slightly deeper and richer than the first two brews. There was a slight astringency at this stage complementing mellow taste perfectly.
In total, I made seven infusions and left it there before it got too watery. Overall Jing Tea Shop Ba Xian is a decent representation of Fenghuang Dancong Oolongs and suggested for oolong lovers.
