From Adagio Teas

Oolong tea from Taiwan. Formosa, meaning ‘beautiful’ was what the Dutch explorers called this island. The oolong teas grown here continue to be called as such. Unlike its dark brethren, this is a Jade Oolong tea, almost green in appearance with large, hand-rolled leaves. Once infused, these unfurl to release this tea’s delicate notes, exquisite flavor and enchanting fragrance. The ‘Oolong Symphony no. 18’ tea is sure to become your favorite. We urge you to give it a try.

An amazing tea Sample two from amanda"soggeyenderman"wilson

When I smell the leaves dry, I smell flowers.

When I smell the leaves wet, the smell is intensified.

When I smell the brewed tea, I smell sweet flowers.

When I taste the brewed tea, I taste sweet flowers that remind me of peaches.

I rate this a 100 because it tastes really good.

Many thanks :)

I really enjoyed this – I have been experimenting with new oolongs, and this one is very fresh tasting. I also love how economical it is, getting many infusions out of just a teaspoon!

Brad – musky and not great
Sarah – didn’t like
UPDATE – after trying it again, we both enjoyed it. May not order Adagios again, but would seek out other jade oloongs.

This is definitely on the green side of oolong, and is similar to the other “Jade Oolongs” I’ve tried, Tung Ting and Pouchong. It’s a bit more minerally and astringent and less flowery than Pouchong, and very close to the Tung Ting from TeaSource I tried. Its hard to define the difference, except I’ve heard this tea described as “clean” and that seems to define it—a characteristic like rainwater or almost more like an herb tea rather than grassy. It’s the kind of tea I could see myself drinking all day, yet not one I’d want to drink every day. A good, solid tea, but not one I think destined to become a favorite.

Nice balanced flavor. Lightly oxidized and very green in leaf and liquor. Nice intact leaf structure, good for many infusions without losing flavor. Probably my favorite oolong I’ve had from Adagio.

Brewed gongfu style in a yixing pot. This is a very fine example of a good jade oolong at a very reasonable price. Light smooth oolong taste with buttery notes. This tea is also amazing at how many times it can be reinfused to the point that it frequently outlasts me which is very rare considering that tea tends to have a very short lifespan around me.

This tea has a wonderful aroma—buttery, with a slight spice note. The taste is nice, light, buttery, vegetal flavor. It is amazing how much the leaves expand during steeping.

I’m on my last leaf of this, and I tried to make the most out of it. I love the beautiful floral scent with a light, sweet taste. Very good! Steeped this twice in a huge mug. I may try to squeeze out another.
