From Le Palais des Thes

Wu Long (thé semi-fermenté) de Chine au parfum fleuri et noiseté. Long en bouche, d’une grande finesse.

China Wu Long (semi-fermented tea) with a flowery nutty bouquet. A beautifully delicate flavour, long in the mouth.

I decided to start discovering tea with what I have at home, where I have to be, writing my thesis. While I am familiar with different types of black or green tea, I only had oolong once before, so this is the perfect time.

The colour is surprisingly (to me) clear, almost like a white tea, the smell is delicate while present and definitely nutty. The taste is not too strong either and it develops nicely after a few seconds.

Several people told me in the past they don’t like tea, because it’s like “drinking hot water”. I am pretty sure they wouldn’t like this one at all, but I’ll try it again, maybe with more tea or longer steep time.

Hum while reading comments on other Tie Guan Yins, I found out you have to steep it several times, I had no idea, on the pack they only say “5-7’”.. learning every day !
