Sakuma farms manages the only tea plantation in the Pacific northwest, and so far as I can tell, the only tea plantation in the western half of north America. I was enthusiastic that I might be able to drink tea grown in my own region!

I like it, but I don’t love it. Sakuma Farm’s Oolong tea has a delightful, sweet flavor, almost syrupy. I miss the roasty or flavor that I usually look for in oolongs, but the flavor is very pleasant. Another comparison with other oolongs: I can usually steep oolong teas two or three times before losing flavor, but Sakuma’s oolong loses most of its flavor in the first steeping making an already expensive tea much more dear. Perhaps I got an odd batch, but it’s not my favorite tea.

Appearance: these pictures show the leaves dry and after initial infusion. The leaves are roughly curled and unfold beautifully after infusion. I can see little red spots on the edges of the leaves that at least seem very natural. I’m not sure whether the leaves of this oolong or of the green are more impressive after an infusion. Liquor: amber. Smell: slightly smokey, clear oolong smell. Taste: mildly smokey, light oolong flavor. It’s considerably more mild than some oolongs like an Iron Goddess. I preferred the flavor warmer than cooler. I liked this but didn’t think the taste was unique enough to prefer it over the other Sakuma Bros. options, or another oolong. 6/10.
