Wuyistar Brand of oolong had produced 2 tins of Lao Chong Shui Hsien for sale. One is a silver tin and the other a gold tin. Both cans comprises of 125g of oolong and the gold version is a few dollars more expensive than the silver one.
The oolong in both tins are high roasted but the gold tin has the roast level raised a notch higher. I enjoy both tins and found the silver version sweeter with a pleasant perfumed floral aroma.
The gold version has a good oily mouthfeel. Very long lasting aftertaste. The sweetness is hardly present but the good mouthfeel makes up for the absence of sweetness. It is a personal preference whether you want a little sweetness in the silver version or you settle for a very pleasant finish in the gold one. However I found both versions only being able to brew up about 6 infusions before weakening in a hurry.
I recommend you try these 2 versions if you come across them in your vicinity.
