From J-TEA

This green oolong from Nantou, Taiwan was aged in a Heaven Hill bourbon barrel for just shy of two months. The results are fascinating. Slightly citric with a great flavor, and a great mouthfeel. This is a tea that I can make again and again and seem to never get tired of it.

I got this as a one time thing I’ve been meaning to try for a long time. If would probably visit this tea house because of its glowing reviews online, but J-Tea’s website is lacking the care. I got my order labeled Dylon instead of my actual name which was clearly spelled out on the computer order. It came by quickly than the last one without tracking…never mind the email of the package says I can track it when I could not. So if you buy J-Tea International, expect good tea, high prices, and customer service that I do not applaud.

So the tea. The tea is arguably overpriced in some ways. However, LP was impressed enough to want his own 4 oz serving, and I am glad that I only paid for the two, with one oz of this and the other the darker Drunken Dragon. Oolong can also be expensive. Bourbon Barrels are expensive, and scenting tea takes time. Gaining profit in tea is also difficult.

The tradeoff? A combo that surprisingly works naturally. Sweet Bourbon whiskey in aroma and taste amidst a refreshing green oolong. The tea was also fairly easy to play with working Western at 2-3 minutes or Gong Fu starting with 15 sec with A LOT of leaves. I’m not sure if citric is the right way to describe the aftertaste as I get that more from the Bourbon than the oolong, but the oolong was floral and on the sweeter side. It reminded me more of a Four Seasons in terms of its florals and smooth texture, but don’t rely on my judgement for that. It is a scented tea after all.

This was a one time thing for an almost great tea. I may do business with J-Tea again if something amazing comes up, but that may be a long time away. I’d rate the taste a 90, but I’m not sure if its worth the same price again.

This is a qued rating because of one of the gifts in the Oolong Sampler. The two who haven’t paid, it’s being spoiled…
So the aged oolong sampler had two nice people gift the 1979 Beauty :)
I asked for two samples and got four, one of them was this.

holy shit
I’ve drank a lot of green oolong, a ton, and this went into the top 3 on the first session.
I’ll be getting 4 ounces of this next year for sure.
