Wow, this was a pleasant surprise. I got this at the Oriental Mart nearby, and decided to get some to see if it was any good. It was, and it is a good light oolong. The package doesn’t say what type with the exception of it being from Taiwan. Every time I’ve had it, it’s had a slightly different taste. It’s a medium roast, but at first I could have sworn it was like a Jin Xuan. Later on, it was more like a Li Shan, but a little more floral and less salty.

Steeping is very forgiving for this and it changes over time. At three minutes, it’s light, vegetal floral, and a little creamy, but at five minutes, it’s more buttery and almost nutty with the same profile as before. I can steep it again at least once. This matches the descriptions that I’ve seen of Li Shan, and most of the others that I’ve had were way too light and salty. This one is flavorful and still simple. I’d probably introduce people to oolong with this one because the steeping is so forgiving. Even more experienced drinkers might at least appreciate it.

I might up the rating later since it’s so good yet so cheap, but it definitely works for my college setting.

I have tried a few tradition/Good Young Co. teas. I have found all of them to be surprisingly good for cheap tea. If you see the strawberry black, grab it. I think you will not be sorry.

Me:

I am an MSU graduate, and current alternative ed. high school social studies and history teacher. I formerly minored in anthropology, and I love Egyptian and classical history. I love to read, write, draw, paint, sculpt, fence(with a sword), practice calisthenics on rings, lift weights, workout, relax, and drink a cuppa tea…or twenty.

I’ve been drinking green and black teas ever since I was little living in Hawaii with a dominant Eastern Asian influence. I’ve come a long way since I began on steepster and now drink most teas gong fu, especially oolong. Any tea that is naturally creamy, fruity, or sweet without a lot of added flavoring ranks as a must have for me. I also love black teas and dark oolongs with the elusive “cocoa” note. My favorites are lighter Earl Greys, some white teas like What-Cha’s Kenyan offerings, most Hong-Cha’s, darker Darjeelings, almost anything from Nepal, Green Shan Lin Xi’s, and Greener Dong Dings. I’m in the process of trying Alishan’s. I also tend to really enjoy Yunnan Black or Red teas and white teas. I’m pickier with other teas like chamomile, green teas, and Masalas among several.

I used to give ratings, but now I only rate teas that have a strong impression on me. If I really like it, I’ll write it down.

I’ll enjoy a tea almost no matter what, even if the purpose is more medicinal, for it is my truest vice and addiction.
