One of my favorite things about an oolong is its staying power. I know that if I start a pot in morning then I will be able to drink off of the same leaves for most of day. It has gotten to the point that as much as I enjoy a good black tea, I feel almost guilty when I don't resteep the leaves.

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.
