I have only tried a couple of Oolong teas from T-Oolong Tea thus far, but what I’ve tried, I’ve really liked. This Shanglinxi Yang Zi Wan is no exception!
The aroma is intensely floral, evoking thoughts fantastical thoughts of what it might be like to walk through a forest dense with flowers: such a sweet, enchanting fragrance.
The flavor is also quite floral and sweet. There is also a fruit tone in there, tasting like something between an apple and a peach. It has a broth-y sort of mouthfeel – smooth and thick. These flavors of flower and fruit linger in the mouth long after the sip is gone, providing one of the longest aftertastes I’ve yet to experience from a tea.
A true delight, this Shanglinxi Yang Zi Wan!
