A review of China Oolong Tea by Twinnings
Tea Name: China Oolong
Tea Type/Varietal: Oolong
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf:
Liquor Color: reddish
Water Temp: 200
Time: 4 minutes
I take one of the individually wrapped tea bags and opened it, putting the tea bag in my cup, I than pour in the boiled water and leave it to steep for several minutes.
Tea’s aroma is slightly smoky and the tea’s color is reddish amber like. When I sip of the tea it is the aroma that is tantalizing my palette at first; smoky, woodsy like with a roasted flavoring in the cup. I take sip after sip of the tea, enjoying its smoky flavor.
Water Temp: 190
Time: 5 minutes
This steep water is not as hotly, and steep is longer because I want more of the tea’s smoky flavor to come through and it does that nicely with 2nd steep. This cup of tea is more robust and the tea’s color is a darker reddish color.
I like this second steep best because the flavor comes through and through reminding me of other oolong teas that I have enjoyed.
Overall tasting notes: This oolong is lovely robust and smoky cup of oolong. Nicely oxidized and tea does not need anything added to it.
