Single Origin Teas Singbulli Darjeeling Oolong Organic

Photo: Single Origin Teas

Country of Origin: India
Leaf Appearance: dark, tightly curled with scattered golden tips
Ingredients: oolong tea
Steep time: 5 minutes
Water Temperature: 200 degrees
Preparation Method: ceramic infuser mug

One type of tea that I am a sucker for is oolong from Darjeeling. These teas can vary a lot due to the processing and they aren’t anything like their Chinese cousins. I was excited to try this one from Single Origin Teas because I had previously enjoyed their. Although the leaves appeared quite small at first, they unfurled to be much larger than I expected. The taste was full of floral and muscatel notes along with a pleasant nuttiness. It finished with a fruity sweetness that lingered in my palate long after each sip. Overall it was a really enjoyable cup that came across more as a Darjeeling than an oolong. I only had time to do one infusion but the leaves definitely could have gone another round or two. Organic is always appreciated. I might not be able to see or taste the difference but it makes me feel better knowing that I don’t have to worry about pesticides (as much, but that’s a whole other can of worms).
