I’ve been busy with stuff lately and haven’t really had time to sit down and write a nice review after having a cup of tea.
I got this tea through a contest I won from SafaHimalaya (thanks!). There were two small packets of oolong (jade and night) along with my 55g of Himalayan Spring First Flush Black Tea. I was in the mood for an oolong and decided this one would do.
The smell of the loose leaf is just amazing. Has a slight floral smell to it, with a nice sweetness to it.
The liquor is a nice pale yellow color. First infusion in my oolong pot http://www.flickr.com/photos/gpudlowski/4608939561/ … The taste is very light. Almost reminds me of a green tea in a way. It has a very faint floral taste to it and seems quite naturally sweet. With each additional steeping, it seems to just keep getting sweeter and sweeter. I used my Samovar Oolong teapot, so it made many many nice small infusions.

Overall, this is a nice light oolong. I would definitely consider buying it when I run out of what I have currently.
