Jinxuan oolong

I had some Jinxuan tea yesterday at my sister’s after dinner (coffee’s really not my thing, more on that another day). The Jinxuan is stuff I bought her before she moved here, so we’re talking a year old tea that’s a little stale now. One interesting observation — the brewed leaves are 100% green, no red at all, but this is, after all, an oolong. This makes me think that even when you look at puerh leaves that are brewed…. colour is not a good indication (or not a foolproof one anyway) of having or lacking pre-fermentation.

    This is what I value most about your blog: thinking things through. Keep it up, please!
