|"A great oolong for every day use with a bit of complexity and a very reasonable price tag."|
My tea for today, oolong of course, is a tea that is grown above 1500m. I don't have a lot of information about where exactly it was grown however. The dry leaves, which as a dark olive green, gives off a creamy grassy aroma. Once brewed the liquor is a medium greenish gold. The aroma remains creamy with an added nuttiness to it.
Tastewise, this is a very smooth oolong that comes through with the promised creaminess. There is a delightful natural sweetness that goes well with the hints of melon and lilacs. There is slight mineral bite at the end of each sip which leads into a lingering sweetness.
I was able to resteep the leaves three times before the flavor started to weaken. All in all, this is a nice oolong for every day use at a more then reasonable cost. It has definitely gone on my list to pick up for myself.
