I usually don’t buy lightly oxidized oolongs, because they tend to end up sitting around for way too long. I guess it just falls outside my preferences, generally speaking. But when I finally got around to trying this one, it did not disappoint; absolutely delicious, rich, sweet, floral, grassy and the longevity is excellent.
After a quick rinse the leaf aroma was amazing. Tea stayed thick and buttery throughout the session, I didn’t count the steeps but it was quite a few. I’ve had much more expensive teas that perform a lot worse for my taste. As far as lightly oxidized oolongs go, this is pretty much as good a buy as I could hope to make
Now discounted at ~$0.20/g it is the cheapest of Stephane’s 2015 oolongs. The price is very reasonable for the quality in my book, and at this point I regret not ordering one of his more expensive 2015 oolongs for comparison.
