Spent a nice afternoon sipping this tea yesterday. This sample was part of March 2015 Steepster Select box featuring different teas of China. This Wuyi Oolong is a deep roasted version from Fujian Province, yielding a bold, earthy flavor and aroma quite different from other regions. I definitely taste the fruity, floral and sweet tones I remember from a few years back when I drank quite a lot of this tea. A really bold yet smooth oolong that doesn’t disappoint.
I really am pleased with so many of Rishi’s loose leaf teas, and they really made a good impact on the tea world by making sure their teas are truly organic and fair trade certified (more than 90% of their teas). Their flavor consistency is also really impressive over year to year harvests.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Raisins, Sweet
