12 Tasting Notes

Was very impressed with this oolong. I think it might be my favorite from the Oolong Sampler Silk Road Tea’s has.

You can definitely taste some of the fruitiness under the strong, smooth toasted flavor of this tea. The aroma is great as well.

Light in color, with a pretty strong earthy taste and aroma. The second steep is much sweeter, and very good. Also pretty forgiving if you steep the tea a bit too long.

Silk Road Teas doesn’t seem to sell this Oolong on its own, but has it as a part of their Oolong sampler, which I would strongly suggest to anyone who wants to get more into oolong teas.

Definitely has a strong flower aroma and taste, but as stated, not overpowering. Light in color, and the taste of the tea does seem to linger after sipping, which is nice. A great tea to have while relaxing after a long day.

A nice light, floral tea. The leaves themselves smell great and have a nice appearance. Pretty good price for 2 oz of this white tea.

Nice golden color after brewing, and a great aroma as well. This tea definitely has a good toasty, nutty flavor to it. Pretty happy for my first go at Lung Ching.

Nice light (kinda earthy) aroma, with a great strong tasting body. No bitterness at all, as others have stated.

A good, light, earthy tea that holds it’s flavor well even after multiple brews. I tend to drink this more in the evening time due to it being low in caffeine.

I would suggest not going below 175F for steeping, as the flavor doesn’t come out as well, and increase your steep time about 30-60 seconds for additional brews.

Even after multiple steeps, the tea continues to hold its flavor and remains very smooth. Definitely a favorite.

If you love vanilla, this tea is great and a must try. If not so much, this will be too sweet for you. As said before, it’s easy to over steep this tea and it becomes very bitter tasting. I try to not steep the tea over 4 minutes, as I’ve found it gets bitter when you pass that mark.
