I could not get much if any information about this tea. Based on the look of the leaves and the flavour, it appears to be a Formosa oolong.
This tea does not stand up well. It took far longer than it should have to actually steep to an acceptable strength level. Each successive steep got weaker and weaker, and far too fast for my liking. For the cost of this tea (something like $5 an ounce), this tea was not worth buying again.

EDIT: Fail for me, I must have been totally out of it when I wrote this review. It’s obviously not a Formosa oolong, but a Se Chung oolong from China.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…
