So so good. Throat is getting much better, nose is still a little stuffed but I wanted something other than strong black tea. Went for a big pot of this tea…wow I can actually taste and sort of smell the “roasted” oolong notes. Although my tealog doesn’t show it this is a teas that I drink all the time. I bumped the rating up because of the three wuyi rock teas I have tried so far this is the most fragrant and is my favourite (although all three are very nice).

Tasted my new batch of this last evening. First impression a little smokey…but not quite as fragrant as the last batch I bought (a couple of years ago) but flavour is still very nice! Leaves unfurled to full huge leaves. Mmm a darker oolong to go with the greener ones I got as gifts from family going on trips to China / HK :)

I went to the Aroma Tea House to pick up my “Monkey Picked” Tieguanyin and got treated to an awesome tea tasting there with this Wu Yi Rock Tea! I have had a sample of this type of tea from a friend before and mentioned that I was interested in getting some to try. She made the tea ’’Gongfu" style in a gaiwan? I think (forgive my lack of tea knowledge—I am still learning!) We (another customer and I) tasted three steepings of the tea! I walked out with 100g of each tea! Thank goodness another customer was waiting otherwise I might of ended up with more teas!!
This Wu Yi Rock tea has a lovely roasted, smokey flavour and aroma.

I love many different types of oolongs. This was the favourite of the three types I had bought from this tea shop in Vancouver a while back. The shop was recommended to me by a coworker who told me the owners that run this shop have a great selection of Chinese type teas and are very knowledgable and fair. The lady there spent a good half hour explaining the different teas to my friend and I (two tea novices) and helped us select some teas based on what we said we liked or wanted to try. I have just finished the last of this last night so I think a visit to this store is in order!
