The black long dry leaves were nothing like the small green pellets I expected to see when I opened the bag. A strong sweet scent filled the canister, a promise of a good brew to come.
As the leaves are quite bulky I used 2 tsp. per cup of 210F water, and steeped at 2 minutes.
A lovely rich reddish orange liquor was the result. It was mildly fragrant, but richly flavorful. Despite the resemblance to black tea, this was all Oolong. Vegetal and sweet with a rich floral finish. It reminds me of a mild muscat tasting Darjeeling.
A good drink when something lighter than the heavy blacks (which i usually prefer) is called for. This is one rich flavorful Oolong tea.
