From Harney & Sons

Bai Hao Oolong is dark oolong from Taiwan that is similar to Fanciest Formosa Oolong, but it has more body. There are stone fruit aromas without any charcoal masking of the fruit aromas.

The Purrfect Cup sent me a lovely sample of this and I think it’s just great! It’s wonderful hot and iced, both. It’s sweet with a HINT of ‘coal. It’s fairly citrusy especially for a straight-up oolong. Gotta LOVE those natural surrounding and notes that a tea picks up, eh!?

This is lovely!

This is a nice offering from Harney and I definitely like this style of darker oolong. I brewed this western style for about 3 minutes using nearly boiling water.

Lots of stone fruit here, a very soft tea with a bit of minerality… is it good? yes. Is it exceptional? not to me. After reading the description on their website I think I ’d like the fanciest formosa oolong better because this would be good with some charcoal aroma!

The Purrfect Cup

This is good to know. I’ve got a wish list at Harney and I may have to rethink it now. I will say that oolongs are becoming a fast favorite tea for me.

TeaBrat

you can get the sample size for $4 if you just want to try it…

teawing

I may have to try this one too, that free shipping option is too good to pass up.

The Purrfect Cup

Oh sure twist my arm with a good deal. ;) I’ll have to see…seeing as I did get a large order of teas the other day. Might have to wait a little.

TeaBrat

I would be tempted but am still trying to work my way through the last Harney order… :)

The Purrfect Cup

What was in your last order? (Not like I need anymore ideas…but I do)

TeaBrat

Florence, Organic Assam, Tower of London and LOTS of $4 sample sizes… my favorite thing from them is Paris and I am also fond of the White Christmas.

The Purrfect Cup

Yum!! I like Tower of London and Paris too! I’ll have to look into the $4 sample thing.

No twisting intended! :)

The Purrfect Cup

No, no twist away!

teawing

Ok, if you say so.

I can’t believe it has been two years since I had this last. A lot has changed in that time. This is a very old sample, and when we last drank it, my husband was still partial to cheap black tea with lots of sugar and some milk. Now he prefers green, white, and oolong tea taken plain, and enjoys having puerh with me.

This is definitely weaker and that is my fault. It was a wonderful tea and I have let my samples and swaps build up to embarrassing levels. I don’t include them in my cupboard, so I have no idea how many I actually have but I have been trying to knock the numbers down for a while now. Ridiculously, there is tea I want to order and that is part of my incentive to make headway on sip downs.

The fruity aroma is still here. The tea was a medium light golden color. There was little to no astringency. We made five steeps using one teaspoon of leaf per eight ounces water. I steeped for about three minutes each time. The fifth steep was weak enough that I felt it futile to try for a sixth, but I did enjoy the ones we had.
