Review: Tealicious Berry Oolong

Chinese oolongs are typically on the light side, about 10-20% oxidized. To give you the full picture, black teas are fully oxidized and white teas aren't oxidized at all. Typically I tend to the Formosan (Taiwanese) oolongs that are fermented to 60-70%. The lightly oxidized Chinese oolongs tend toward the more orchid and iris flowery flavours. The more heavily oxidized teas tend to be more earthy and full bodied. This blend is a nice because it is light and flowery, but the fruit grounds the tea and makes a wonderfully cheery medley.

The website calls this a Chinese green oolong, and I am not entirely sure what that means, but that is my only issue with the methods that are used on the website. I brewed this oolong for 4 minutes at 208˚F. I brewed the same leaves three times and the second brew brought out the most well rounded and delightful flavours, in my opinion. A sample of this tea is only a dollar, and 2 oz. (which will make 15 cups if you only brew it once), is a mere 6$, which is a pretty good deal for the benefits and flavours. I really appreciated this fruity tea.
