From Yunnan Sourcing US

This is a more roasted version of our Four Seasons Oolongs. The technique brings out a chocolate nutty aroma that is a delight to smell. The flavors are thinly sweet, roasted and tangy with notes of dark chocolate, and a fresh grassy-ness.

Bought this a while ago and finally giving it a go. I mostly drink oolong but have been somewhat hesitant to buy them from Yunnan Sourcing as I think they are really average teas and not much definition. That said I do like all they offer in greens and pu erh, that’s where they shine. This tea is from the US website and must of been sourced prior to the Taiwan Sourcing site going live.
Dry leaf has usual floral hay scents, the liquor is deep golden with a definite creaminess, floral bouquet and mild char from the roasting. You can get a hint of chocolate from the first couple brews as the website suggests. After the first 6 steeps flavors drop off but still the structure is there in the viscosity and color. I played it out for a total of 12 steeps.
Now I have to re-examine my purchasing to include more oolongs from USUS.

do you have a favorite vendor for oolong?

For Wuyis and Phoenix oolongs Dragon Tea house, Tea Drunk, and Tea Urchin. All have top flight teas. Anxi oolongs I get pretty much from all types of vendors as it is one of the most consistent varieties, Aroma Te Shop has some under the shelf stuff that’s drop dead gorgeous. For Taiwan oolongs Song Tea, Taiwan Sourcing and a local shop in Flushing at New World Mall Yun Xiang. The proprietor is from the mainland but the store is mostly Taiwanese teas, she also has some of the best green jasmine I’ve ever had. Hope that helps.
