As others have said, this is definitely an oolong. Perhaps they meant to call it a green oolong tea. I don’t know. But whatever it’s supposed to be called, this is good stuff. After seeing all those rave reviews on this tea, I just had to buy myself a pouch.
The first thing you smell upon opening the pouch is a lovely minerally condensed milk. The leaves are dark green and crumpled into messy little balls, as is the case with most green oolongs I’ve had. The liquor is a lightly colored and totally delicious. It’s creamy and milky and smooth and green and good. There’s a slight melon-y fruitiness as well.
After the first steep, the leaves get huge but are clearly capable of another infusion. Smells like it’s about to get vegetal! I’ll report back on how that goes. :)
Steep 2: Yes, this is definitely a bit vegetal now, but not much. The flavor here also reminds me of papaya. Still sweet and creamy but not so milky as the first steep.
This is a lovely tea, whether it be a green or an oolong.
