From Adagio Teas

Oolong tea from the Wuyi mountains in the Fujian province of China. Wuyi Oolong grows defiantly in the gaps of the mountainous rock, rendering cultivation both arduous and spell-bindingly beautiful. This tea is famous for its ’dragonfly’s head, frog’s limbs and three colors.’ The latter refers to the green, red and brown colors found in the cross-section of each leaf. Similar to other fine oolong teas, the ‘Wuyi Ensemble’ may be infused a number of times, with each infusion revealing a new nuance of this tea’s complex flavor.

$10/1.5 oz

I use this tea for gungfu tea drinking, usually a tablespoon in my Yixing clay pot for one minute, starting at about 200 F and going to a full roiling boil by the third or fourth steep. It’s all peaches and perfume with a hint of smoke and wood, and a complete lovely complex of scents and flavors, I only drink this when I can really concentrate on the tea.

Brad – too roasted and earthy
Sarah – agrees

Again just adding a tasting note for the newbie tea palate. I thought this one tasted like the lapsang suchong of the oolong world. Very smokey. No rating from me as I am not an expert, and I will try this one again at a later time. I hope to grow up a little in my tea tastes one day, but am loving the adventure and variety available.

Earthy, raw but smooth taste. Light orange in colour and pretty smooth.

Copper appearance on first steep. Strong smell, smells like burnt wood/leaves. Full bodied taste, very earthy. Definitely a tea you have to be in the mood for. But very good when you are

First sip on first cup: hint of strong sweet rapidly followed by heavy wheat earthy notes. The sweet note won’t appear again until you take a break from drinking it. I found this to be surprising. The grain/earth is persistent and strong. Almost overbearing but stops just short.

It is a typical oolong experience. Enjoying it as an evening tea

Great soothing tea. Smoky, earthy, nutty flavors. Has the effect on the missus and I of inducing a coma-like sleep. Best drank with a spot of honey.

A tea with a nice earthy smell to it, sort of similar to grass, but an easy smooth taste going down.
