A review of Magnolia Oolong by Tea Savant

Date: 11/02/2012
Company: Tea Savant
Tea Name: Magnolia Oolong
Tea Type/Varietal: Oolong
Region: Fujian China
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ loose leaves
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: a blushing amber
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings: several good steeps, most impressed with 1st steeping because of the tea’s aroma is surprisingly very pleasant.

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: I had received several samplings of this Magnolia Oolong and I happy to be having a cup of this throughout my day. I take on tea spoon of the rounded petals and place them in my cup and I add the boiling water into my cup and leave to steep for several minutes.

The teas’ aroma is light floral scent. This sweet luxury tea is highly regarded as one of Tea Savant’s finest teas. I remove the tea leaves and continue to enjoy the floral intoxication as I take several quick sips of the tea since it is very hot; I like the complex sweetness paired against a smokey undertone. I simply love, love this tea and I cannot say enough about it. The color is like gold; darken peach, rustic of a blush even.

Tea Savant describes this as “world class tea, enjoy loose leaf, and watch the leaves open in your cup.” It is most impressive oolong I have had and I am grateful for Tea Savant to have sent the many samples for me to enjoy. Thank you for trust, and for making such a great product.

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.
