drank Oolong Tea by Buddha Teas
4843 tasting notes


I’ve never made any big secret about the fact that I prefer loose leaf over the bag – I think most of us here do. So, when this tea was sent to me to review by Buddha Teas, I really had my doubts. Oolong teas just shouldn’t be in a tea bag, they need that room to expand.

But I tried to go into the review with an open mind.

The box says it’s a four seasons Oolong, but I would question that because I’ve had a few four season Oolong teas and they weren’t like this. This reminded me more of a Formosa Oolong. It was toasty and warm with more fruity notes than floral notes. The four seasons Oolong teas that I’m familiar with have always been more floral and vegetal than toasty/warm and fruity.

I thought maybe I steeped it wrong so I got another bag and tried again – and got the same results … this is definitely more like the Formosa Oolongs than the four seasons Oolongs that I’ve known.

It’s still a pretty tasty tea – regardless of ‘name’ and even regardless of the bag. Sure, it’d probably be even better without the bag but it’s pretty good.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
