Another monthly selection by BRUU for me…from a few months ago!
I thought it would ressemble the mango oolong tea I received in another selection, but this one is way more subtle, even when only considering the aroma´s. In mouth I get the feeling I simply don´t get the subtleties of this fruity oolong. …or it might just be I like my oolongs strong! I´ll drink it, but this isn´t one of those “wow” oolongs for me!

From BRUU´s website :
What it is? Using a sophisticated method of half-fermentation, this Oolong is only fermented on the edges of the tea leaves. Resulting in a delicate, full and floral tea with hints of orange.
Why we love it : Lightly toasted, Orange hints. . . like marmalade on toast.
Where it’s from? Wuyi is one of the two regions of Fujian in China, together with Anxi county, which are most well-known for producing oolong teas. Wuyi teas are often grown on exposed, rocky areas where the poor soil and exposure to weather create a unique flavor of the finished tea.
How our drink hits the senses? An enchanting, soft, flowery aroma, which brings ripe peaches to mind.
The taste journey : A soft, orange flavour travels around your mouth, a sip at a time whilst the fresh tea comes through and then that delicate familiar Oolong taste.

Flavors: Orange Blossom

180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
