drank Wuyi Oolong by Rishi Tea
21 tasting notes

I found this tea to be a little too bitter for my liking, perhaps it is more oxidized than the oolong teas I am used to drinking. The flavor is quite robust and holds up to a number of steepings (~6). I absolutely love barley but I didn’t detect a strong barley presence due to the overpowering sweet raisin notes.

I was happy to try this tea but I don’t think I will be purchasing more in the future.

Bio

I’ve been a loose tea drinker since 2006 and I really started getting into tea during my college years. My favorite types are oolong, scented green, white, peppermint, and rooibos.

My husband and I drink it on a daily basis and we love our trusty Zojirushi water dispenser. Some of the tea we drink hot, and the rest we chill.

I enjoy tea with honey or german rock sugar. I also try to seek out unique honey for my tea. My favorite so far is unprocessed Hawaiian white gold honey.

If I’ve rated a tea over 90, it’s something I will definitely be drinking again in the future.

Lately I’ve been enjoying a lot of authentic Chinese tea that was gifted to me from my mother after her last trip to China. Unfortunately I won’t be able to write notes for those teas on Steepster.
