Where To Buy: Bird Pick Tea & Herb
Phoenix Yellow Stone Oolong Tea is cultivated from small tea trees, some of which have been around for 700 years. Their limited production as well as their unique harvesting methods make it rare.
This tea will leave a rich and complex flavor on your palate and is distinctive with its aroma and fruity accents.
First…Good Morning & Merry Christmas!
I am going to spend some more time with this specific oolong but here are my first findings and I will say I am very pleased with this tea!
Royal Phoenix Yellow Stone Oolong Tea has a slight woodsy aroma and on top of that a more charcoal type aroma with hints of fruit…altho I can’t tell you what type of fruit…and it’s more of a rind or skin of the fruit than the actual ‘meat’ or ‘flesh’.
As for the taste…it’s VERY different! Again, taste-wise, I can taste the fruit comparison but it’s more of a rind/zest or skin type fruit taste than the actual fruit itself, I suppose. There is a slight drier-wine type taste so maybe the fruit I am tasting could be comparable to grape-skin type taste, maybe!
The more I sip it – the more I like it. And the more I am thinking of a wine comparison. There seem to be hints of strawberry…I’m thinking more like the top of the strawberry – like up top by the leaves and stem rather than a plump juicy strawberry.
This is GOOD because it’s interesting and unique and I am enjoying my cuppa!
I hope you are all blessed with a nice cup of tea today!
Happy Holidays from your SororiTEA Sisters!
