Oolongs similar to Bai hao

Postby inaris_servant » Sep 19th, '13, 22:52

I have been wondering.. what other oolongs are similar to Bai Hao?
Currently I have a yixing pot dedicated to this tea but I am wondering if its okay to use for others and which ones.
Any thoughts and feedback?

Sri Lanka's silver tip tea is similar to Bai Hao but has thicker body. Some Darjeeling 1st flush have some Bai Hao character too.
I personally prefer to brew white tea in Gaiwan or zhuni instead if Yixing pot.

Cheers!

Would it be a better practice to have the pot dedicated to Taiwanese Oolongs only perhaps?

Baihao Oolong or Baihao Yinzhen?

Really few Oolongs are like Baihao Oolong..you should rather find Blacks similar to this..

If Baihao Yinzhen, light-oxidated Gaoshan or Baozhong might be similar yet not the same.


IMO neither of it pairs well with Yixing teapot...agreeing with Teaism :)

+2, Darjeeling 2nd flush sometimes too, but less often.

Bai Hao oolong.
How is this one (Gui Fei Mei Ren)? I have read up on it but I am unsure still.

Would it be wise to just keep the pot for Taiwanese oolongs or would that be bad for certain ones if I have them all brewed in the same Yixing?

Most Guifei Meiren I've had is a little greener (less oxidized) than your average Dongfang Meiren (Baihao oolong). If done right, you get that same acidity from the jassid bites.

I personally would brew both in porcelain, esp. the latter.
