I was thrilled to find Zealong available in Canada through Tula Teas at the recent Victoria Tea Festival after hearing great things this New Zealand grown oolong.
I have always been hesitant to try oolongs grown outside of their original growing locations, but the Zealong folks have done a brilliant job.
I easily steeped this one 6 times, about a minute each time, just under the boil. As the name suggests, a very clean, sweet and pure aroma coming from the cup, and the beautiful clear yellow liquor was quite striking.
Beautiful silky mouthfeel, sweet and soft floral buttery flavours.
Looking forward to trying the roasted version soon!
