From Silk Road Teas

A lightly oxidized Oolong, Snow Pear is from the An Xi Region of Fujian Province. Hand-rolled leaves are a light shade of green and offer a subtle fragrant aroma as the name suggests. The taste is light and brief yet distinct leaving a thin sweet fruit aftertaste. Rinse this Oolong, then steep it for 2-3 minutes in water of 195-200 degrees.

Something new for the first cup of the day. Another good oolong. Flavors are more subtle, slightly sweeter than others. The aftertaste is slightly fruity but not enough to say it is definitely pear.

As the tea cools, hints of pear become more pronounced.

The marriage of honeysuckle nectar and clover honey. Sweet and refreshing. Very light and easy to sip quickly. The leaves are very tender and remarkable good quality.

This is a nice greener oolong and complements other more oxidized and roasted types of teas. I like drinking this one along side a sweet Sun Moon Lake black. Sometimes nice going back and forth between the two, fully absorbing the complexity and contrast of the different class of teas. Nonetheless, this tea can be certainly drank by itself with great pleasure.

This is a fairly light tasting oolong. It has the peppery and flowery tastes that I like, albeit in a milder form. I prefer Silk Road’s One Bush oolong.

Technically this is more a pouchong than an oolong, but either way, it is a very nice tea. Great fruity and herbaceous notes.
