This is very similar to Zhi’s Wuyi. A little more laid back perhaps. I like the “woodiness” with a bit of floral nose. I usually do two steepings of this tea. Like it a lot.
Sechong Oolong is a nice, slightly mellower alternative to our Wuyi Oolong. This rare and unique oolong from Fuijan Province, China, consists of a 75% oxidized, unrolled charcoal brown leaf with greenish highlights.
A sophisticated dark amber liquor reveals flavors of chrysanthemums and peonies with a spicy-peppery finish. Sechong Oolong is a simply outstanding tea for the health conscious connoisseur.
A little more about Sechong Oolong:
Sechong is a relatively unknown type here in the US and is similar to our Wu Yi rock oolong, but Sechong has a bit of a more laid-back feel and drinking experience. Sechong Oolong holds up well to a second and even third steeping. Sechong tea is noted in a very particular woodsy-spicy-fruity character which unfolds and is unique to this oolong. Sechong Oolong is a great tea for those who like a complex taste and are willing to learn new flavors.
