122 Tasting Notes
Very nice light oolong, not as good as wuyi or pouchong, this one has a more floral quality almost a woodiness. Its not my favorite green oolong but it isn’t bad and the multiple resteeps bring out different aspects of the floral notes.
Wonderfully light and floral with a slight butter aftertaste. Second steeping really transforms into an almost jasmine like floral taste and you lose the butter quality. It definitely costs enough, I’ll have to do a comparison with their standard pouchong back to back but this one does not disappoint and it holds up well to many resteepings.
When you use a really good heaping of tea and steep about 3-4 minutes you can actually get some flavor out of this, not much, but some. I’m definitely getting a lighter version of dragonwell with a buttery taste. White tea has never been my favorite but this tea is perfect if I want something light.
A great morning tea, lighter then assam but still has enough bite to start your day. Refreshing and perfect with something sweet.
One of the best keemun’s I’ve had. Balances both the smokey and chocolate. The smell is more cocoa and the first taste is actually a smokey leatherness, almost tobacco. It then ends with a cocoa almost molasses aftertaste. Very nice keemun.
Its a very nice in between chinese green. It’s nutty and vegetal, sweet and dry. The leaves remind me of bancha and it does have a resemblance taste wise as well, but its also richer.
Nice reliable tea.
It is what it says, a light vegetal green tea with a nice sweetness. A slight brothiness which I like. By no means my favorite and sadly forgettable even now as I write this. It’s ok.
A nice solid black tea with a malty sweetness. Two minutes works perfectly for me.
This lighter green side of oolongs reminds me a lot of pouchong. I got this as a gift from a good friend because I would never pay the 25 dollars for 2 ounces, thats just insane. Its a nice reliable green oolong.
I’ve never had an indian oolong but this is an amazing tea. It has the richness and complexity of assam but it is slightly lighter and resteeps almost forever. A great hybrid of two traditions and very enjoyable.
