Hmmm oolongs… Like the red wine of the tea world for me, there used to be some that I loved and some that I wouldn’t use as a drain cleaner and so is the case with my on/off love of oolong teas. So this morning I tried something that had been sat in my collection for a while, primarily to finish the last of it off. 


Brewing it up for a few minutes at around 90 degrees, the little green pellets unfurled into lovely nice sized leaves and this is an oolong that sits closer to the green tea end of the scale. Taste wise it does take on a green tea flavour but with that certain something that tells you it is in the oolong family. No distinct flavours seem to leap out at you when drinking, it is pleasant but not something that I would buy again.
