How roasted and oxidase is this Yancha?

Postby Maxwell2079 » Oct 30th, '11, 01:34

Hi everybody.

Could anybody tell how roasted and oxidase is this tea by the pictures (sorry I know they are not very good)?

Is it on the medium side or high one?

If it is on the medium side, could you show some pictures of wet/dry leaves from a high roasted and oxidase Dahongpao?

The roast is medium-light for yancha. I think its harder to tell oxidization from photos, but it appears –based on the amount of reddish color on the edges of the leaves– to be medium. It looks also like it might be a blend of more and less oxidized leaves, because some leaves are pretty green.

Thanks for your reply edkrueger!!!

By any chance do you have a picture of a heavy oxidase DHP? Wet leaves?

If not, could you tell me if they are completely brown or black? Or it could have green leaves as well?

Hi Brandon!

Thank you for showing the pictures.

I guess your tea is higher roasted and oxidase than mine right? Since there are no green leaves.
Is that Da hong pao too? Did you like it?

May I ask where did you buy it? :D
