not impressed by boxed supermarket tea i didn’t have much expectation, but the packaging looked high quality, like a premium product so i gave it a try.
and i am impressed.
i had far worse loose oolongs from real tea shops.
it’s made from medium leaves, and not very large leaves.
the smell is very nice like a slightly milky sweet oolong, but not artificial.
the taste was not bitter at all and even with 5 minutes steep time at about 73 °C it became very sweet and aromatic, just like a good oolong.
it even had a slight fresh taste to it, you rarely get a fresh green taste from oolongs.
the aroma could even be more dense, so try 4g on 150ml / 5g on 200ml.
i would definately recommend it and i am gonna try the other kinds of tea from Hazo, too. The price range is very good for the quality (8.50 Euro / 100g)
Flavors: Caramel, Milk, Mint
