From Tribute Tea Company

Cassia Bark oolong is one of five famous bushes of the Wuyi Mountains — a bastion of legendary tea mountains with immensely jagged cliffs and world renown oolong teas. “Rou Gui” refers to the cassia-bark tree, aka: Chinese cinnamon….

Its origin dates back to the early part of the Qing dynasty, becoming the most recent addition to the “famous tea bushes of the Wuyishan”. Following a traditional charcoal baking, this incredibly aromatic leaf has sweet hints of roasted maple. It withstands several steepings with ease, revealing sweet, earthy notes and a touch of spice…

Notes: maple, brown sugar, cinnamon

Infusion: 200ºF / 93ºC for 1-2 minutes

Origin: Wuyi, Northern Fujian Province, China

no rating on this one – another from Terri. This type of oolong is not my favourite even though it’s a roasty oolong. There’s a taste to these that just never works for me, no matter how much i try. This is a smooth tea though, so i recommend giving it a try if rui gui oolongs are something you enjoy :)

In other news, my creamy basil tomato soup with tortellini is delicious! so happy :)

I don’t think I’ve ever met a tea from Fujian Province that I haven’t enjoyed, & this one is no exception! I enjoy Rou Gui Oolongs, with their sweet cinnamon & caramelized sugar flavor, & this is a nice one, with a slight hint of charcoal in the background.
1 T in 8oz @ 200, for 2 minutes, enjoying this first cup & looking forward to re-steeps.
Thanks Brett for sending a sample! You’re awesome!

THANKS Terri! Glad you enjoyed it… In our family, this is my Dad’s favorite leaf — which is kind of a problem, and a serious shock to my supply. I mean, that guy can drink tea!
Happy sipping…

And it’s so nice of you to keep him, supplied! :)
