This oolong is gorgeous. The dried tea leaves look like little bundles. It smells very similar to a good genmaicha (Japanese popcorn tea): slightly sweet, woody, delicious. Once brewed, its flavor is hard to describe, just like the last oolong I tried (Townshend’s Tea Company’s Wuyi Mountain Oolong). The color is lighter, but the flavor (after the first brew) is pretty similar. I’m looking forward to the next steep.
