This is a nice, smooth Oolong from someplace. A friend at work brought this back from his visit home to Taiwan. Its all in Chinese, except for a single reference to www.gfbz.com, so thats how I filed it. That may just be the company that did the packaging…but the packaging actually merits comment. There are a dozen or so individual servings in the metal can, which is a “pop top/pull ring” sealed can. Each serving is vacumn packed in a pasticized paper bag. It seems to work well, the leaves smelled very fresh and vegetable when the serving package was opened
The leaves are compactly rolled, but unfurl to full sized leaves (torn edges) and soft stems and leaf buds when steeped. The brew is a pale yellow with a hint of rust when brewed in a clear glass carafe.
Taste is smooth, no bitterness. Not to much green leafy vegetable

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
