Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: East Pacific Tea Co.
Travel far away to the Fujian Province of China. Our Honey Gold Tea steeps a nice amber color and releases a captivating orchid scent. Serves great chilled, and will impress any connoisseur.
A lovely Oolong.
Just as the description above suggests, the aroma is indeed captivating with its flowery notes. I can also detect a somewhat woody fragrance to it, with notes of earth lingering in the background.
The sip begins with a woody flavor – oak, perhaps? – and finishes with a sweet, honey-esque smoothness. There are faint hints of smoke that weave in and out throughout the sip, and a stronger fruit note that is somewhat peach-like. There is also the slightest whisper of flower in the sip that reminds me of the air in my gramma’s backyard when the honeysuckles were in bloom.
I have come to expect exceptional quality when it comes to East Pacific Tea Company and this Oolong is certainly exceptional. The flavor is deliciously complex and contemplative, with an aroma that enchants the spirit. And the best part when it comes to East Pacific Tea’s high-quality Oolong teas? They product multiple infusions – stretching the value of this fine tea. What a delight!
