Leaf Appearance: dark, twisted shape
Ingredients: oolong tea
Steep time: 5 minutes
Water Temperature: 212 degrees
Preparation Method: ceramic mug
Liquor: light gold
This tea came packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag and was part of the Artisan Comfort Collection. The taste was earthy and nutty with notes of honey. There was just a hint of floral sweetness in the finish. Despite the pale color, it was actually rather robust and savory. Overall it made for a very complex and delicious cup. As you might expect, the loose leaf version is better but it was still very good. I love a high roasted oolongs and my tea wallet is often stocked with these. Typical of an oolong, you can resteep for a second cup that is almost as good as the first. I would definitely recommend this tea.
