Dong Ding Ming Xiang Oolong Tea
4 of 5 Stars
I received the Ming Xiang tea today. First, I will say that it's good. It is somewhat different than the previous Ming Xiang. If I were pushed to choose between them I would probably choose the former, only because I think it was a little more fruity, with a unique plum taste. However, a plus with this present Ming Xiang is that it seems to offer more infusions. Today, using a gaiwan I stopped at 6 infusions with good taste, and maybe could have had a couple more fair cups. The dry tea is noticeably darker on this tea more than the previous one, and it seems to be roasted more. Or maybe more fermented, I'm not sure. Anyway, it's a good tea and I'm satisfied with my first encounter with it.
