drank Ginseng Oolong by Oolong Tea Shop
54 tasting notes

Translated Oolong means ‘Black Dragon’. The Dragon in Chinese mythology stands for the Emperor. After the first 3 cups you may get an idea how this tea gets this honour.
One of my most favourite Oolongs in regard of flavoring…
The brews that one gets out of one portion seem to be endless.
Great color, fruity smell, profound taste, unique aftertaste which is warming one’s throat.

Very easy to handle and almost impossible to screw up.

Only thing to keep in mind is that a Chinese tea grower would rather chop his right arm off then putting a ‘foreign’ fragrance on a GOOD tea.
