I got this Oolong at a Chinese grocery store on Canal St. in New York Chinatown. They have a large variety of Chinese teas sold by weight and I have found them to be very good. I am a great fan of Tung Ting Oolong from Formosa. Formosa (Taiwan) is just across the Formosa or Taiwan strait from Fujian Province where this tea is grown so it’s not surprising that they have a similar taste and history. The Monkey picked Tea Kwan Yin is a light Oolong as is Tung Ting with a semi-rolled style and light oxidation and light firing. To my taste the Tea Kwan Yin is not as floral as it’s Tung Ting cousin. It is a very satisfying tea with some aspects of green tea and some deeper aspects brought out by the roasting. Very enjoyable.
