I’ve been wanting to sample more oolong since I haven’t had any in ages. I had purchased a few smaller samples from Puerh Shop, which seemed pretty reasonable, and they had small portions to buy/try. Therefore, I added a few of these to an order (a few weeks ago), and I’m now starting to get to the samples.
This Wuyi is the second oolong from the few that I had purchased. It has a nice roasted seaweed note, with a touch of peanuts. The mouthfeel is thick. This tea almost reminded me of pu-erh, but similar to a black tea, too. I didn’t like the first two steeps, but as the tea lightened up, I found myself enjoying the liquid more. Overall, I’d say that this was pretty enjoyable.
Flavors: Nutty, Roasted, Seaweed
