Oolong tea from Taiwan. The tea leaves are dark green color. Beautiful looking tea leaves. This oolong is very similar to a green tea.

Nose and Color: Very light color
-Just a slight pale green hue
-Looks like plain water almost
-I was very surprised
-Slight floral hints similar to the jasmine pearl in the same collection


-Second steeping is highly recommended. Adagio says it will fully unfurl the leaves and the floral notes will really come out.
-After trying multiple steeping I agree that the floral notes really do come out a lot more but the green tea flavor is lost a little bit.
-Tastes like a very light version of formosa ali shan. This flavor profile makes sense as they are both from the mountains of Taiwan.
