drank Wuyi Oolong by Rishi Tea
25 tasting notes

I like this tea. I prepared it gongfu style, in a gaiwan. I can taste the sweet raisin notes, etc. It does smell and look a bit like leaves off the forest floor, though. Albeit, that’s not a bad thing. The flavor is medium. Not really light or brisk. Just in between. Exactly as a oolong should be. Tastes almost like Lipton, but lighter and more creamy. Almost no bitterness, or astringency. I would recommend it, and keep it stocked.

I still consider myself to be relatively new to the world of tea; started about 3 years ago. There are just too many things to try to consider oneself truly proficient with such a limited exposure.

My favorites are Japanese Tamaryokucha, Chinese Dancong, and Taiwanese Eastern Beauty. I also enjoy a decent pu-erh, from time to time.

I use gongfu-style preparation, and a gaiwan. But sometimes, I just use a medium Finum basket, and 6oz cup.

I’m always open to suggestions, or advice. So, feel free, and don’t be a stranger. I’ve been receiving some interesting suggestions from other reviewers, and I’m looking forward to trying these other teas.

So far, everyone on Steepster has been very kind, and welcoming, and I enjoy participating in the community.
