2008 West Lake Dragon Well Green Tea (Xi Hu Long Jing, 西湖龍井)

Long Jing can be better than this and far more expensive. But this one is great!

My last bit of 2007 Dong Ding Oolong (Frozen Peak Oolong, 凍頂烏龍)

This is the tea that almost made me cry (I mean, in a happy way). Dong Ding (Frozen Peak) Oolong is not new to me. But this one still shocked me with its high quality. In the first a couple of infusions, its milky buttery (well these words are not exact, but what else to use?) taste would always catch my full attention. I can't have my dong ding oolong and do anything else or think about anything else, because it is so good and it has entirely got me!

The 2007 Dong Ding Oolong I got from Wu Yu Tai Teahouse is a memorable one! I am finishing the last bit.
