I prefer greener oolongs, so I’m not rating this oolong. I felt it was weak, will try to gong fu it next time I brew. It does taste honeyish with no astringency. Will adjust rating after gong fu if I felt it improved. Nothing stood out for me, not bad though.

EDIT: I gong fu it, and it tastes a lot better! I prefer the Red Tiger from Thailand a lot better. Western brewing I feel doesn’t work well with this tea. Gong fu is the way to pick of all the subtle flavors.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
