Taster’s Review:

This is a beautifully complex Oolong.  I think that is what I adore most about Oolong teas is that they have this wonderful complexity to them that I don’t find in many other teas types.  So many layers of flavor!

The aroma of the dry leaf is quite vegetative with hints of a floral background note.  As the tea brews, the fragrance softens, and interestingly enough, the vegetative essence does not translate very much into the flavor.  There are some slightly vegetable-tasting notes in there, but, what I get mostly are sweet notes of fruit and flower.

The sip starts off sweet and crisp.  It is a delicate taste that develops.  Floral notes weave their way in and out of the sip.  About mid-sip, a somewhat sour fruit note arrives – not an overwhelming taste, but it seems to be just enough to help lighten the sweetness a bit.  The sip ends with a soft sweet flavor and a light, tangy astringency.  The astringency is very slight and does not interfere with the sweet aftertaste which is incredibly pleasant.

I love this Oolong – I highly recommend it!  This one is great iced too!
