This tea is always so clean and crisp. I’m really not sure how else to describe it. It’s quite light as far as oolongs go, but I love it for that. It still has the depth and body of a traditional oolong, but is a bit lighter taste wise.
I think my favorite aspect of this tea is the aftertaste when I’m drinking it iced. The initial sip hits the tip of the tongue, but the aftertaste plays with the whole body of the tongue; starting in the back and bouncing back and forth before it settles on the front again. My whole mouth is filled with that uniquely oolong flavor and I smile.
Steeping note: I brewed this tea at double strength because I was pouring it over ice.
I’m going to hold off on recommending this tea purely because I’m sure there are oolongs just as good or better out there that are more affordable.
ETA: Second steep just as good as the first <3 And I love how much the leaves expand.
