drank Oolong Tea by Yamamotoyama
600 tasting notes

A review of Oolong Tea by YamaMotoYama

I have tried many of the YamaMotoYama tea brand and I am happy to say I am trying another of their tea.
I am using one tea bag in my cup and pour the boiling water over the tea bag. I leave it to steep for a few minutes; I then remove the tea bag and put it aside.
Tea’s color is dark amber, very orange like in the coloring and the tea’s aroma is that roasted chestnut kind of smell. It is a very pleasant aroma. As I taste this I find that I am enjoying the malty and smoothness of it, and remind me of the Foojoy Oolong teas that I had purchased a while back.

I seem to prefer the darker oolong for their roasted flavoring and that smokiness in the cup, all good for after a meal or to drink while having a heavy meal.

I like this tea and that it is Oolong tea with no astringency at all. It is malty and smoothing to the palate.

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 15 sec

I agree it is similar to Foojoy, but I personally like this one a little better.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
Steepster is offering: Steepster Select and together we’ll explore the world’s most interesting teas; with one free month and the resuming price of $24.95 for the remainder and one is free to cancel at anytime. I have no income and I live on my husband income; so would this be wise to do knowing where my life is at right now?
It is something to consider and thank you for the invite. Thank you for Steepster.com’s community of tea drinkers, tasters, reviewers, aficionados and all.
