From Adagio Teas

The moderate climate of New Zealand and its unspoiled, lush green hills have proven to provide ideal growing conditions for tea, in particular oolong. Roasted at high temps, this Zealong oolong yields a smooth, complex cup.

The first infusion of our Masters Waikato Zealong is quietly toasty, with whispers of citrus fruit and floral notes – perhaps honeysuckle. The second infusion is a bit softer with buttery notes and honey-floral character. But don’t stop there – these leaves are cultivated to produce numerous infusions each to be admired for its nuances.

WOW! Absolutely love the website! I think it’s the best tea review site I’ve seen. Your Tipu’s review from yesterday really interests me. While I love the regular instant for the very fact that they don’t include dairy or sweetener, I’m definitely interested in trying it. I find it odd that they use soy though. Interesting. I just hope they don’t discontinue the current instant.

Thank you, I am glad you like my site. I am just starting out but so far have enjoyed playing around with my blog. As for Tipu’s based on your preferences I have to say that you would love Sample A. I doubt they will discontinue the original. I believe this will be an additional selection to purchase.

Smells of wet leaves, fresh hay and mixed with a hint of tobacco? Normally tobacco would be bad, but this one works for me, although with allergy season in full swing, I’m not sure I really trust my nose today. The leaves do not unfurl as much as the ali-shan or the jade oolong also from Adagio. Even by the second steeping. It steeps to a pleasant clear golden color.

Taste is hard for me to pin down again probably due to my spring time joy of allergy season. What I’m getting is a bit fresh bread like mixed with some slightly sweet vegetable like flavor.

I like this, but not as much as the Jade, or Formosa Ali Shan from Adagio. I should put this in my try again after allergy season ends pile since I may be missing something subtle with my system as messed up as allergies can make it this time of year.
