From foojoy

From the back of the box:
FOOJOY CHINA CLASSIC OOLONG comes from southern Fujian’s mountains (Min-Nan), where clouds and mists produce Oolongs of exceptional character. In the manufacture of Oolong, tea leaves undergo partial oxidation, a step that changes the color to a golden amber and the flavor to a complex, invigorating cup. True to a traditional Oolong, FOOJOY’s high-grown CHINA CLASSIC OOLONG makes a smooth, rounded cup with a slightly toasty fragrance.

So I am going out the door this morning and I notice my wife has a box of International Delights Almond Joy non-dairy coffee creamer cups sitting on the counter. Well who doesn’t like Almond Joy? So I grabbed one and tried to decide what tea will go with this. I started to use puerh and I still may have to try that one next week. I settled on this wuyi oolong thinking the roastiness would work well. I poured the whole container in the cup and it turned this dark tea almost white. This is obviously coconut but not really milk chocolate and only a little almond. I’m a bit disappointed not to get those flavors. I do think half the creamer would have been better. Still it was a fun way to start my work day.

I finally opened this China Classic Oolong tea and it is most pleasant in the cup.

Color is a light amber, but with two tea bags it is dark amber with slight toasty note. Mildly fragrant and makes me think of green tea with each cup. I cannot say why but each sip is like I am drinking green tea.

This Oolong will continue to be a regular cup for me in that I can consume it daily, no jitters.

Enjoyed another cup of this tea which is rich is flavor, a very robust brew at times milky like but no milk added. Flavor changes from cup to cup, perhaps me and time of day.

So…I had this, evidently, at a restaurant about a year ago. If it’s where I think it was, my entree was likely so spicy it burnt off my ability to detect all but the most rudimentary flavors. So at the time, I called it “nutty.”

K S sent me another bag to try, sans spicy drunken basil stir fry, and I’d like to amend my previous description. This time around, I’m getting Juicy Fruit. (Which, according to various wiki-think opinions, incorporates banana, pineapple, and peach…and maybe jackfruit, whatever that is.)

Vagueness notwithstanding (on my part), it’s pretty tasty, I know it meets my Cheapster Steepster standards, and there’s always something to be said for a convenient little bag you can tuck in your purse or pocket. Worth checking out.

I definitely do not care for this tea. Tastes like dirt to me. I suppose the term should be “earthy,” but dirt works for me. It tastes somewhat like a watered down version of Numi’s Emperor Puerh I tried the other day, though it doesn’t have the fishy flavor.

The Yamamotoyama is VERY similar. These are heavily roasted oolongs. I think I also sent you a lightly oxidized oolong that is a totally different experience.

It is earthy but really neutral to me as well. Can be combined with other teas as well
