Amazingly fragrant Oolong, true to its name. The Plum fragrance is overpowering and rich. A great tea, a bit ‘perfume’ like to me. I prefer more subtle tastes but the quality of the tea itself can’t be denied.

Editing: Compared to all other Mei Lan Xiang I’ve tried this one has the strongest scent in the forefront but really lacks power in the aftertaste which is why Oolongs are renown. I’m downgrading a bit because of this.

This is my kind of oolong—a little bit roasty, fragrant, sweet, and lightly floral. I don’t get plum initially, but it comes in very nicely in the aftertaste. Just the thing for yet another snowy day. Thanks very much for sharing this with me, CharlotteZero! I wasn’t familiar with Silk Road Teas prior to this swap, but this lovely tea has prompted me to check out their site and I see they have lots of other exciting offerings. Definitely one to keep in mind for a future order.

Yay! I’m glad you liked it. :-)

Very pleasant stem-twisted oolong. Rich, plummy flavor with a floral, toasted rice finish. Brews a reddish liquor. Sadly, this is one of those teas which loses its essence after exposure to air. Good excuse to drink it up, but unfortunately this is a tea I’d like to keep on hand and enjoy slowly over time. Hopefully SRT will continue to source this one.

I agree with the essense being volatile and seems to fade every time you open the container/bag. I’d recommend trying versions of the same tea. I found that the Phoenix Collection version is not as fragrant from the leaf itself but the taste lingers much longer on your palate.
