From Uncle Lee's Tea

Only Uncle Lee’s packs extra-large tea bags with whole leaves. This unique method means a higher-quality tea with more flavor and health benefits for you. Our Whole Leaf Organic Oolong Tea is a partially oxidized green tea that has qualities of both green and black tea. An oxidizing process called withering allows the tea to soften, releasing enzymes that darken the tea leaves when exposed to air. Our Whole Leaf Organic Oolong Tea is loaded with antioxidants and soothes the senses with a rich taste and delightful aroma. Taste the difference of Uncle Lee’s Organic Whole Leaf Tea.

So when I bought this tea, I wasn’t expecting much because I wasn’t paying much. First few sips… I definitely wasn’t impressed. I compared it to Raman noodles… you never say “man I want raman”, but when you’re eating raman you eat every noodle. However, I now use two bags and just steep for less time. The fuller body really does add that extra ‘oomf’ that I thought was missing from my brews. It is worth noting that even though this is really whole leaf, there’s also a lot of dust too (incase you’re like me and open up the bags normally).

Uncle Lee’s Pu’erh is also tasty. :)

I have a humble confession- I’ve never actually had Pu-erh…. so I just ordered some. Thanks for the heads up Amy!

It’s a good one to start with, I think!

Comparitively, this cuppa kicks Twining’s Oolong’s ass.
The directions are to steep for 2-3minutes, and this is adequate. The aroma is richer, the taste is richer… just a better quality oolong.
My only complaint is that I seriously struggle opening the packet containing the teabag! When I do finally manage to tear it open, I rip the teabag as well… so then I have to use a teaball/infuser… which feels demoralizing, somehow. =P

Aww, poor ripped packaging. Though, being honest, I always think that the more room that oolongs have to expand, the better.

I can see how that would be true! I really ought to be trying to rip it, then! ;D
