This green oolong has a strong and impressive aroma which creates a favorable impression through its substance. This tea is heavy by volume which is an indicator of great quality.

I really like this tea. It is popular among my friends too. I find that I have better luck steeping it at 195 F rather than just off boiling. The first steeping has that really nice sweet, fruity highlight that reminds me of agave nectar. The second steeping has an earthier flavor. And the later steepings seem light and breezy. It really has the energy of spring – sweet, light, and breezy.

I’ve actually brewed this a lot since this note. I actually have taken it back to boiling water. If I use about 7 grams to about 100 ml of water right off the boil and steep for 45-60 seconds, I get a really nice tea. It is a lovely high-mountain oolong. It has one of the better values for tea that I’ve had – not too pricey, but very nice quality.
