The Tao of Tea
Rich, round taste, wonderful tea tin
Very fresh, high quality oolong
Inside the top lid is another, tighter lid, and popping that lid reveals a lovely oolong scent. The tea leaves are a good size and color, not burnt-looking or shriveled, and when you pour water on them they expand nicely. Brewing for 4 minutes in 200F water results in a very smooth, light tea — brewing for 6-7 minutes gives you a darker, stronger tea, but still very smooth and tasty. I usually have some sugar in my oolong to take the edge off the bitterness, but this tea is high quality and I don’t need to add anything to enjoy the flavor.
Re-brews are also good, although due to the smooth flavor I only do one re-brew. For the price, I was pleasantly surprised by this oolong and can happily recommend it to fans of this kind of tea.
