I like clean, complex oolongs like this one. It tasted like a white tea a times and then it grew into this complex, slightly sweet oolong as I continued to drink the cup. Really complex flavors, each sip a little different than the last. Overall, had a hay type of scent and really pleasantly sweet aftertaste that was surprising. I will definitely drink this again.

Nice. Lightly oxidized, rich green color. Preferred to most oolongs. good for many infusions.

My favorite out of the oolong sampler which has become an afternoon staple. A smooth oolong of moderate strength taste with floral notes. A great alternative for the green tea drinker.

This is a somewhat standard Ti Kuan Yin oolong – slightly floral, but still hints at that ‘woody’ oolong taste that you find in darker oolongs like Wu Yi. The floral elements in Adagio’s Ti Kuan Yin aren’t as present as I would like them to be, however. Additionally, they seem ‘simple’ somehow. This would be a good casual oolong. And perhaps the flavors could be brought out more with different steeping parameters.

AMAZING taste, hard to describe. In Mandarin, Ti Kuan Yin means ‘iron goddess of mercy,’ Thick, leafy balls of this oolong leaf tea just make it look like you’ll enjoy it. Has a very light and smooth flavor that I find really works well for an easy wake-up. This really zings when you add White Peach to it. I bought it as part of the Roots Campaign on Adiago = http://www.adagio.com/roots_campaign/wang_mei_rui.html?SID=ab73d2d6e173dae15bbc9d04ddffcc41
