cameronjuiyuanCameron Tea is a vendor that specializes in Taiwanese Teas. They offer both premium and competition grade teas with the competition grade being specially prepared for regional tea competitions. This is actually my first experience with this vendor and I can say that they have a great website where it is easy to find the tea that you are looking for.

My sample today consists of small, dark evergreen balls of tea leaves. They have a faint floral aroma that is almost a whisper. I set them up to brew using 195 degree water and a steep time of 2 minutes.

The resulting liquor is a pale gold with a wonderful floral aroma. Steeping really caused the aroma to blossom with the liquor giving off the fragrances of orchids and gardenias. Wonderful combo that should be developing into a perfume.

This teas has a wonderfully creamy texture with a medium weight to it. It has a slightly vegetal flavor with hints of artichokes layered with a floral sweetness. As the tea cools, it becomes even sweeter with a mineral kicker to clear the palette.

The second steep has to be my favorite with the creaminess becoming even more pronounced with a milky flavor coming to the fore. The floral sweetness is still present with a hint of peachiness joining it. A delightful tea!

I really enjoyed this tea and these leaves are ones that keep on giving. I was able to get three steeps out of them with a forth being drinkable but weak. This is a great tea for both oolong lovers and for folks looking to be introduced to this style of tea. Definitely recommended!
