this tea tastes antique,
like beautiful wooden furniture;
carved aesthetically pleasing,
while suitably functional.

[personal preference / habit / requisite of circumstance: brewed with kosher spring water, steeped in metal basket diffuser, by ceramic mug; addition of raw sugar, directly to brew basket, pour over hot water under boil, replace basket cap; unfussy steep time; use larger amount than specified, perhaps {measuring tea by customary spoon measure seems somewhat subjective}; addition of plantmilk, such as organic hemp or soy]

pleasant fragrance; vintage, antique.
vignette of history in the mug.

soothing, despite caffeine; limit intake per day.

This is the same style as Rishi's Wuyi Qi Lan, and the two teas are very similar. I suspect that this is also a Qi Lan but I am not experienced enough with Wuyi teas to say for sure.

Rishi's Qi Lan (Wuyi oolong) is sweeter, thicker, more syrupy. This tea is more dry. Both teas have a pleasant hint of smokiness. Whereas Rishi's version is a bit more atypical or unusual, this tea has the classic profile of a Wuyi oolong, and of a darker Chinese oolong in general. However, these differences are subtle.

Lastly, I will say, at $23 a pound, this tea is an outright bargain buy.
