From Rishi Tea

The cliffs of Northern Fujian’s Wuyi Mountains are an important tea producing area with a long history. Oolong tea was first produced in Wuyi and this region’s soil type, microclimate and unique tea bushes produce exquisite oolong. Our Organic Wuyi Mountain Oolong has a smooth and rich body with a classical roasted aroma and sweet finish, Known as Wuyi Qi Lan or “Profound Orchid,” its flavor is quite unique with sweet notes of raisin sugar, honeysuckle and roasted barley. Organic Wuyi Mountain Oolong is great with any meal and makes superb cold tea for the summer season.

A wonderful introduction to Wuyi teas for me. I liked the spicy, earthy, sweet combination of this tea. After I finished the tin, I moved on to explore a wider range of teas from different purveyors, but that’s not because there was anything wrong with this stuff.

The primary infusion of this tea is incredulous. The robust smokey essence left me wanting another cup. However, subsequent infusions are a huge letdown. I tried many different combination of quantity, temperature, and time; but I was left wanting. If anyone overcame this problem, feel free to drop me a note!

Did not like this one at all

It was cheap, thought I’d try it, and well. Horrible.

Great tea. My first entry into Oolongs, ensuring I’ll keep going back for more. Really nice roasted flavor with an earthy palate.

Prepared at 195 degrees for 3:30 minutes. This tea produces a nice brown clear liquor. Very fruity and smooth.

Deep color, but clear. Roasted barley notes are prominent, almost Miso-like finish. A smooth, comfy tea.
