To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever had Oolong. Maybe once in a restaurant, but it isn’t a tea that I buy or have on hand. After tasting this Fenghuang Oolong, I realize I need to change that!
Oolong tea is lighter than black tea, but darker than green. I read up on Oolong so I could give a better review, and apparently some are sweet and fruity, some are green and fresh, and some are thick and woody with a roasted aroma. This particular Oolong is definitely woody with a roasted aroma. I had it straight, no milk or sweetener. It really didn’t need anything. It was rich and had a deep roasted flavor that I really appreciated. I seriously couldn’t get enough!
Oolong is also very good for you! I was surprised to find out that it has calcium, selenium, and also lots of vitamins! It also helps improve skin and hair health, and also aids in digestion. The more I read about Oolong tea, the more I see I’ve been depriving myself of a delicious health tonic!
I truly can’t recommend this tea enough. Oolong has caffeine and can help with mental clarity which I need on a regular basis! I really would recommend everyone to try this delicious tea. It’s both stimulating and calming. It’s the perfect beverage to warm yourself up this winter!
Here’s the scoop!
