Hmmm I was kinda surprised to see this at work…so why not. Yeah it’s not bad. It exceeds what I expected. Reminds me of the oolong that Dynasty puts out. A decent dark oolong at a nice price. Can’t beat that in a pinch.

Although there’s just one ingredient in this tea, it took our family years to select the perfect Oolong from a special region in Asia. We were searching for a tea with the consistent mellow notes that would go well with almost any meal. Ours in particular is not too dark or too light; it’s just right.

Hubby got this box of bags for himself…always makes me smile when he chooses a tea; it’s a rare and pleasant occurrence. Sticking with the recommended two minute steep yield, its mild and leans toward roasty-toasty rather than floral—definitely our household preference in an oolong. Pretty good stuff.
Paid closer attention to the brewing time and only brewed this for just over a couple of minutes today. I think it’s perfect, and the smell isn’t bothering me much (although I had to laugh when I saw my previous review here since that was the first thought I had again today, that I don’t care for the smell!). It’s a nice change from my few regular boring black bagged teas that I drink at work (when I’m too lazy/running late to bring a loose variety).
I really don’t know how I feel about this tea. It’s not bad, but it’s not good you know? I haven’t given up on it yet. I’m going to try a milder brew of it next time. I brewed it 2 bags in 2 cups of water the first time. What also perplexes me is that my local asian bistro serves oolong, and it comes out looking light green. This tea is a caramel color. So who is pulling the oolong switch? I really don’t know. Maybe it’s because this is “Chinese” oolong and the other is a Japanese oolong? I need to do more tea research and get back to you on this one. Suffice it to say I don’t think the taste is worth the price of the box.
Wow I am really impressed at the quality. If I did not personally brew it from a teabag I would think somebody was puling my leg if they said that it was brewed from a teabag. The tea has a nice smooth dark roast oolong, if you enjoy dark roast TKY than you will like this tea, if nothing else as a nice travel tea when loose leaf tea is not an option.
Love it! Nice dark brewing Oolong. I’ve found that I like it best steeped for upwards of 8-9 minutes. I know that sounds crazy, but instead of turning bitter like most anything else would, this tea stays smooth and opens up with some cherry/plum and smokey/toasty undertones.
Ever since my first cup,Oolong has always been one of my favorites. Despite being my favorite,Oolong wasn’t so great for me at first;but that’s what made me curious to try and let it grow on me. With risk came rewards and it was a delight. It’s always good to have some Oolong in your cupboard and Bigelow makes a good blend.
