This Da Hong Pao oolong from Little Red Cup Tea Co. is a bit unusual because it hails from Hubei Province. It was a sweet and mellow yet complex.
Li Shan Cui Feng from Daurium was vegetal with an almost umami-like savory quality. The finish had a lovely lingering hint of orchid.
Enchanting Fragrance from Mei Mei Fine Teas was suprisingly fruity for a Wuyi oolong. I was reminded of perfectly ripe pomegranate.
Songyi Tea Shanlinshi was grown on Longfeng Gorge in Nantuo. The taste was floral with a prominent note of toasted sesame seed. Yum!
8 Immortals was floral with a grounded quality that I really enjoyed. This tea is a must try for those who are new to Phoenix oolongs.
Buttery and soft with hints of a vanilla and hyacinth, this Shan Lin Xi from Zhao Zhu hit the spot. I couldn't stop smelling the dry leaves!
