I have a large tin of this and am sending half of it to my Sororitea Sister LiberTeas very soon!

I have been trying to think of what this aroma reminds me of and I think I finally can put my finger on it! LILY OF THE VALLEY!!!!!

The flavor is that of a very warming and comforting floral oolong with a mouth-watering end sip.

The more I sip the more I like this! I’m shocked this wasn’t already listed in the Steepster Database, tho!

It’s dandy!

Additional notes: I had to find this tea because of the other foojoy I had the other day. Wow is it still a very lovely buttery oolong. I’m impressed. That is all.

Has a delicate floral aroma. Brews an orange-tinged yellow color and has a fruity golden raisin-like presence. Only slightly lingering taste finishing with some floral notes hinting of jasmine. Not a lot going on with this one, but it is pleasant enough. At $16.50/100 grams it is a little pricey for what it is.

Looking at the other reviews for this tea, I’m wondering if I purchased an older batch that has been sitting on the shelf for a while? I don’t see any dates anywhere on the Foojoy packages, though.

Tung Ting is a lightly fired oolong which has a beautiful floral aroma. This tea should be lightly extracted and reused several times, each time giving it a little more time. It is a very subtle taste and should not be brewed strong.

This has been one of my “rushing out the door” morning oolongs for awhile, steeping two tsp of tea in about 10 ounces of 190 degree water for 3 minutes, then another longer steep for my second cup. The second cup is never very good, it’s like this tea gives up the ghost in the first steep. This is the first time I’ve sat down with this tea for a nice, slow gongfu session to see what I might have been missing. It does not disappoint! I’m rather astounded at how lovely this tea is with shorter steeps (30 secs). The aroma is sweet. The flavor is also sweet and floral, with no bitterness or astringency. The second steep is much stronger now that the leaves have opened up a bit more. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Increased steeping time to a minute with 4 and 5. Still going. Leaves fully opened now. Sixth steep, flavor has become more vegetal. I could probably keep going, but I’m going to stop here (my eyeballs are floating).
