This is for the sachet version of this tea, two people sent me one each and now I don’t even know who! After trying a red robe oolong and absolutely hating all that was going on with it, I don’t know why I’m actually attempting another wuyi, but here goes.
I didn’t follow the little instructions on the packet at all. Five minutes with boiling water? Noooo. So I went with about 4 with near boiling water.
It’s okay, not something I would ever buy myself. Woodsy, roasty flavors in oolong just isn’t for me I guess.
I do like that it has a bit of sweetness to it, but it makes me feel like I’m drinking tree roots. I’m going to blame that actually more on the scent of the tea. If I could avoid smelling it when I take a sip, I would probably enjoy this a lot more, because it is actually decent once I get past that.
I’m surprised I like this better than a higher quality wuyi oolong but then again it probably is cheaper overall and it’s a tea bag, therefore all these flavors aren’t coming out like crazy like the other one.
But yeah, wouldn’t actively seek this out.
