From SafaHimalaya

This delicate, high quality Oolong is comparable to the best Green Oolongs from Taiwan, with complex flavor with a subtle sweetness. Orchid-like taste made from the very first flush of the year capturing the flavour of spring, mountain-fresh.

With an oxidation level at about 15%, our Himalayan Jade is very lightly oxidized and is as close to a green tea as you’ll find in an oolong. Experience oolong like you have never experienced before, our Himalayan Jade is a rare delight.

This wonderful teas’ leaves don’t look anything like any oolong I’ve ever had. They’re not balled. Instead they’re twisted. They’re not uniformly colored or monochrome either. Instead, they’re a mixture of brown, gold, green and white leaves. The aroma is more hay and straw than anything else.

Once brewed, the leaves produce a wonderful orange liquor that, while clear, reminds me of sherbet. The brewed aroma smells more of a light Chinese green. Not so much grassy as artichoke-like but not heavily so.

The flavor is light, easy on the palate and smooth. While there is some astringency and a light drying of the palate it’s subtle. Flavors of straw and hay combine with notes of a floral undertone which seems to add some sweetness to the brew.

I’ve been busy with stuff lately and haven’t really had time to sit down and write a nice review after having a cup of tea.

I got this tea through a contest I won from SafaHimalaya (thanks!). There were two small packets of oolong (jade and night) along with my 55g of Himalayan Spring First Flush Black Tea. I was in the mood for an oolong and decided this one would do.

The smell of the loose leaf is just amazing. Has a slight floral smell to it, with a nice sweetness to it.

The liquor is a nice pale yellow color. First infusion in my oolong pot http://www.flickr.com/photos/gpudlowski/4608939561/ … The taste is very light. Almost reminds me of a green tea in a way. It has a very faint floral taste to it and seems quite naturally sweet. With each additional steeping, it seems to just keep getting sweeter and sweeter. I used my Samovar Oolong teapot, so it made many many nice small infusions.

Overall, this is a nice light oolong. I would definitely consider buying it when I run out of what I have currently.

Extremely light green oolong. Light as a Bao Zhong, but without the sweetness. Green/floral notes. Refined.

Some flavor and aroma, but could be more rounded in other aspects. Score of 81. Review #271 on Walker Tea Review.
