This is definitely on the green side of oolong, and is similar to the other “Jade Oolongs” I’ve tried, Tung Ting and Pouchong. It’s a bit more minerally and astringent and less flowery than Pouchong, and very close to the Tung Ting from TeaSource I tried. Its hard to define the difference, except I’ve heard this tea described as “clean” and that seems to define it—a characteristic like rainwater or almost more like an herb tea rather than grassy. It’s the kind of tea I could see myself drinking all day, yet not one I’d want to drink every day. A good, solid tea, but not one I think destined to become a favorite.
