This is a very pleasant oolong. It is very smooth, slightly floral, and very woodsy. When I smell it, I feel like I’m sitting in a cozy log cabin, drinking my oolong tea! It is also slightly sweet, and light. I don’t get any spicy notes, I’m wondering if my water temp was not hot enough. i used the hot water from the office machine since I’m at work. I will need to try this again at home, when I can get the water a bit hotter. I’m curious to see how the taste will change! This is a nice tasty basic oolong.
Oolong is a specialty, which was originally produced in the Taiwanese mountains. After plucking, the teas are pre-fermented and then wilted in the sun. Frequent turning of the tea in bamboo baskets during the drying process allows the Oolong to develop a mild aroma and a large, wildly curled leaf. After steeping, the still green leaf center with the fermented leaf edges becomes clearly visible. It is very light in the cup and has a flowery and spicy taste.
