This is the oolong tea from my second month of Bruu tea subscription.

Information from Bruu´s website :
Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU;
These broken black leaves of the world famous Nuwara Eliya region hit your senses hard, it is hard to explain, but it smells like tea that has already been brewed!
As the drink is BRUUing;
The freshness really starts to kick through and travel on the steam straight to the back of your nostrils. The smell is so comforting.
The taste journey;
It doesn’t get better than this, the Somerset BOP really has an amazing balance. It would work perfectly with milk or without, it carries so much presence. Offer a cup of this up to any well-respected tea drinker and they are surely going to commend you with making them a fantastic cup of tea. Don’t give too much away though, it tastes too good to share!
About the tea region;
Talawakelle Tea Estates PLC produces the best of high-quality Ceylon Teas in 17 of the most enviable tea gardens, duly situated in the panoramic tea country in Sri Lanka. 12 of these tea gardens, situated in the sublimely cool environs of Nuwara Eliya, manufacture high grown teas in their mountain based factories, whilst the rest, situated in the verdant south, produce equally admirable quality teas, to satisfy the discerning traits of even the most ardent connoisseurs of tea worldwide.

Very similar to Pedro BUP from the first subscription box, although this Somerset BOP is slightly more what I associate with oolongs, i.e. this fermented note in taste. Another perfect breakfast tea.
