A nice and light tasting oolong from Mountain Tea. Vegetal and soft fruity flavors dominate the flavor of this tea. The early steeps were a sweet vegetal taste with a bit of fruity undertone, like peas or cucumber and melon. After the initial three or so steeps, the vegetal flavor became more savory – almost salty. So the tea had an interesting combination of a vegetable-broth start and a sweet fruity finish. In some of the steeps I also noted a bit of a pine flavor which accented the vegetal notes well. The decent thickness of the body lent further credence to my thinking of the flavor as broth-like. Pretty enjoyable green oolong tea.
