One of my favourite’s oolongs so far! A great combination of a great taste and a affordable price! You can find a better oolongs out there for sure.. but they will cost you a fortune actually! I find this tea to be great for “tea-beginners” – it opens the doors to the world of oolongs at a bargain price, a nice thing to start with.

Still it is considered to be not as good as Tie Guan Yin in terms of quality, but it has a great aroma and quite a deep and complex taste for it’s price. It can withstand multiple infusions (even up to 7-8) really well and moreover the aroma and taste fully develops with further infusions. If you need a good, let’s call it “everyday oolong” – that is the choice!
