A review of Authentic Wu-Yi Tea (Premium Blend) by Wu-Yi Source
Oolong Tea, Natural Apple Flavor
To savor the full flavor and produce the best results from our tea, bring fresh water to a rolling boil. Pour hot water directly over the tea bag in a standard size mug. Brew 3-5 minutes or to desired taste. One bag makes 8 ounces of hot Wu-Yi tea.
For Iced Tea:
Brew tea, chill, then pour over ice and serve with fresh sliced lemon
Contains approximately 30mg of caffeine per 8-oz (250mL) cup.
I brewed this tea for a few minutes and left to steep. Tea color is a light amber. I have decided to add a small slice of lime to it since tea odor is most faint. The lemon does seem to liven the tea for a citrus aroma and mingling nicely throughout.
I do like this tea; it is mild in body and flavor. Not at all astringent, but I cannot seem to discern the apple flavor to be found in tea, prior to adding the lemon that is.
I had purchased this tea last year and it was close to its expiration date, so perhaps that is why I cannot discern the apple flavoring since it must have evaporated somehow. Tea does not taste stale or flat; it is just plain Oolong tea, the kind one drinks after dinner at a restaurant serving Chinese/Cantonese/Taiwan cuisine. Tea washes down nicely after a full meal.
