Fantastic oolong! Its very different than this company’s other oolong. This one I feel is much more robust and complex. It certainly depends on the mood you’re in, personally I prefer the Babylon, all though its an extremely hard decision for me to make.

Oolongs have always been a very special tea to me, I think its the most complex and versatile of all. And the Lifelong is no exception. It comes on strong but sweet and finishes with a delicate natural taste.

An Oolong of the highest quality… in all my years in Darjeeling I have not seen a tea with this depth of shade and leaf quality. In my opinion, greatly overshadows my other Darjeeling tea purchases with its unique flavour and aroma.

I struggle to give any tea a 100/100, so I’m going to give this less than 100. But it came really close to being the perfect tea. It has a stunning look and feel, and tastes like a mix of champagne (without the bubbles) and flowers.

The golden leaves look incredible when brewed, yielding an orangish-red brew that tastes like a flower. A truly delightful tea that stands out.
