Gui Fei Oolong - Totem Tea

 Gui Fei Oolong originated in Taiwan and is a dark brown roasted dry leaf color.

 I steeped this tea at 205F starting with 10 second infusions and increasing each time.
 I switched cups for the final shot but only so you can see the color of the tea.
Gui Fei sips in with a surprise. I've had darker roasted oolongs that take on a very nutty bold flavor and I've had high altitude taiwanese oolongs that are buttery and sweet with a lingering creaminess that stays on the tongue. Now merge the two and that is what I thought of this tea. It was unlike any other oolong I've tasted before. Brewed up gongfu, it unraveled to be complex on so many different levels, Gui Fei took me for a roller coaster ride I didn't know I hopped on. I thoroughly enjoyed what this tea has to offer and I plan to come back for more. If you enjoyed this review and want to try it for your self you can purchase it here for $10 an oz.

If you have any questions comments or concerns please feel free to send me a PM! Want to decide which tea I review next? Don’t hesitate to ask!
