Hmmm I was kinda surprised to see this at work…so why not. Yeah it’s not bad. It exceeds what I expected. Reminds me of the oolong that Dynasty puts out. A decent dark oolong at a nice price. Can’t beat that in a pinch.

Although there’s just one ingredient in this tea, it took our family years to select the perfect Oolong from a special region in Asia. We were searching for a tea with the consistent mellow notes that would go well with almost any meal. Ours in particular is not too dark or too light; it’s just right.

Hubby got this box of bags for himself…always makes me smile when he chooses a tea; it’s a rare and pleasant occurrence. Sticking with the recommended two minute steep yield, its mild and leans toward roasty-toasty rather than floral—definitely our household preference in an oolong. Pretty good stuff.
Paid closer attention to the brewing time and only brewed this for just over a couple of minutes today. I think it’s perfect, and the smell isn’t bothering me much (although I had to laugh when I saw my previous review here since that was the first thought I had again today, that I don’t care for the smell!). It’s a nice change from my few regular boring black bagged teas that I drink at work (when I’m too lazy/running late to bring a loose variety).
I really don’t know how I feel about this tea. It’s not bad, but it’s not good you know? I haven’t given up on it yet. I’m going to try a milder brew of it next time. I brewed it 2 bags in 2 cups of water the first time. What also perplexes me is that my local asian bistro serves oolong, and it comes out looking light green. This tea is a caramel color. So who is pulling the oolong switch? I really don’t know. Maybe it’s because this is “Chinese” oolong and the other is a Japanese oolong? I need to do more tea research and get back to you on this one. Suffice it to say I don’t think the taste is worth the price of the box.
Wow I am really impressed at the quality. If I did not personally brew it from a teabag I would think somebody was puling my leg if they said that it was brewed from a teabag. The tea has a nice smooth dark roast oolong, if you enjoy dark roast TKY than you will like this tea, if nothing else as a nice travel tea when loose leaf tea is not an option.
This WAS my favorite tea until I tried loose leaf teas then went back to this and it doesn’t taste nearly as good anymore, not sure why because I didn’t originally think loose leaf tasted better. This is a dark oolong, which I liked, I thought it tasted similar to black tea but more flavorful. But not anymore which is a major bummer. Maybe I just got a bad batch.
2020 Advent Swap – Day 24
One of our traditions on Christmas Eve is Chinese food. Here is one to compliment our tradition!
I was completely surprised by how good this one turned out to be! I didn’t expect much, mostly because I don’t drink much oolong tea, and a bagged straight oolong didn’t sound promising (no offense, Bigelow). Guess I shouldn’t be so snobby about the bagged teas! It didn’t have a roasted flavor like I was expecting. Instead, it tasted very chocolaty. I’m sure I wouldn’t have guessed it was oolong if I didn’t see the name on the bag. I would have sworn it was a black tea. Great pick, Devon Bartholomew! I hope you and your family enjoyed your holiday tradition! :)
I’m going to feel like a jerk for making a review on this, since my coworker gifted me a full box of bags for Christmas…I’ll keep this in my work stash, for desperate moments, but it’s not my cup of tea. :P
I swear bagged teas have a flavor that I cannot place. I call it the ‘bagged tea taste.’ I guess the plus to this tea is that it reminded me of a rock oolong, but one with a bagged tea taste. Heh.
