From Red Blossom Tea Company

Stroll into the cliff-side tea houses of Fujian or the dim sum restaurants in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and you’ve likely experienced the captivating aroma and flavor of this amber oolong.

Hints of chocolate, caramel and butter. Mildly smokey and spicy… just enough to transport you to early 19th century China, and the cup of tea in your hands is all that’s important in the world.

I think this is what I’m drinking… Not sure. I was falling asleep at my desk at work, so I decided to hit up the new coffee shop that opened up in a garage around the corner. I had my mind set on a soy latte, assuming they wouldn’t have any tea that met my standard. Well, behold they have loose leaf tea’s from Red Blossom in Chinatown! Far superior tea any coffee house usually carries. So I grabbed the Oolong, but I forgot to catch what kind of Oolong it was. From the look and taste of it I THINK this was it. It’s super tasty! And now I am more awake then I have been all day. I am so glad I didn’t get a coffee. Long live tea!

I’ve really been impressed by their teas – I only wish I had something nearby that served it!

Oolongs are by far my favorite teas, but I’m not sure about flavors added to my tea. Did you have this straight up?

I never put anything in my tea, expect for the occasional green tea soy latte (unsweetened). Oolongs are a fav of mine as well.

Wuyi Amber stands out as a nice surprise of its pleasant flavor and quality as it is not only the cheapest Wuyi oolong that I’ve had to date it is also likely the best quality one as well. The brew has a pleasant burst of spicy flavor which while contains some traces of smoke is not that strong so don’t be cared away if you do not like smoky teas. The robust initial taste is hard to really describe but I think the vendor’s attempts of hints of chocolate and spicy does it justice and butter and caramel for the lighter and lingering sweeter after taste. Although without the suggested flavor profiles I would probably just say an initial robust spicy roast taste that fades away into a smoother sweeter aftertaste. A very wonderful wuyi that I plan on sticking to when it is time to reorder for as long as this one is around.
