From Stash Tea Company

One of the world’s great teas, oolong is semi-oxidized with qualities of black and green teas. Distinctive fruity taste and golden color. In 1690, Japan was ruled by the Tokugawa Shogunate, the Manchus had repelled the Mongols, Louis XIV ruled in splendor from his new palace in Versailles, Czar Peter had just attained the throne and Johann Sebastian Bach was five years old. And that same year in Japan, the Yamamoto family began producing premium teas, a tradition that continues to this day. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the finest in the world.

TTB Tea #8:

1 bag (2.11g)/6oz water.

Steeped liquor is a medium, dull brown. Aroma is very toasty (personal “uh oh”). I’m not a fan of toasty teas, but this one has a sweetness that smooths and balances the toastyness. I won’t buy this based on my distaste for roasty teas, but for anyone that does enjoy them this is a pretty darn good bagged tea.

Drank the loose-leaf version of this tea many times over the past week. Could get a good three steepings out of it. It is pleasantly toasty and has a warm taste with no bitterness. It is my new everyday tea. Only bummer is that I need a filter because the leaves are a bit small.
