I opened this tea today. There’s quite a lot of tea here for 2 oz. It has a smoky, toasted seaweed smell with a hint of sweetness. After brewing it the suggested amount of time on the package, it has a more green, floral scent. In my white mug it doesn’t look much different from hot water, but it smells lovely. I don’t think a minute is enough time to brew the tea. It does have a grassy flavor like a green tea. I’m not sure I know what I think about this tea yet. I’ll brew it longer next time to see what happens.

Got this as part of a monthly Steepster set. It has a light woodsy scent. I enjoyed it as an afternoon sipper.

I got this tea as a Steepster Select member and my wife and I loved it! The sample they send is perfect for brewing a full pot of tea and it went great with honey. I usually don’t like green teas, but I love oolong and this really did the trick for me.

I am not a big fan of oolongs that are this lightly roasted, but this one was pretty good. Nice for a change.

Pleasant, but like others noted, not overpowering, even though I accidentally oversteeped it on the first brew. Mild but indistinct floral notes, not much finish, but again, may be altered by accidental steeping for almost 2 min.

A very fine Oolong from Taiwan with a lightly sweet and floral aroma—without being cloying or overpowering. Multiple steeps yield consistently good cups of yellow/light green liquor. After 3 steeps, the flavor gets noticeable notes of osmanthus flowers and melon. Very pleased with this tea, which is somewhat reminiscent of the Taiwan High Mountain Oolong of TeaVivre.

Flavors: Floral, Melon, Osmanthus, Sugarcane

(1st steep: 1 min) This tea is pleasant. There is less floral notes than I was expecting, but they are present. There is a slight mineral flavor and some slight butter in the finish and mouthfeel. There is a slight sweet fruit at the end that I can’t quite place. All in all a nice enjoyable post-lunch tea.
(2nd steep: 1 min 30 sec) One thing that I enjoy about oolong teas, besides that they taste amazing, is that they change while not changing over multiple steepings. This tea is the same. I notice a much deeper fruit flavor. I want to say it is plum or cherry. The floral and mineral components are still present and balance out the fruit. There is a refreshing quality to this tea that is hard to describe in any greater detail.
(3rd steep: 2 min) This steeping the flavors have shifted again with the butter being the first one experienced. Floral and mineral are both present with the sweet fruit finishing out the tea. This is a tea I can see myself coming back to again and again.

Flavors: Butter, Cherry, Floral, Mineral, Plum

Yum. I’m on my third resteep with flavors still holding on. I appreciate how the full green leaves unfold as they are steeped, connecting me more with what I’m about to consume.

Had this one after lunch and weighed these leaves to get exactly 4 grams.
Dry leaves smell amazing,,,butter cookie and vanilla orchid. I like the forest green color, but some of my twisted strips were crushed a bit so I missed those pretty long strips.
Liquor is a light spring green color and still with the butter cookie and vanilla orchid scent which is cool that the butter cookie stayed—I am looking forward to tasting this.
Flavor is yumm,, very creamy, butter cookie and mostly floral on the nose, not the taste. Very enjoyable Pouchong/Baozhong!
As it cools, it gets a bit more green and floral but it mostly tastes like creamy butter cookie.
