Great Intro To Oolongs

This is a great sampler. The Source Mountain is a great light sweet/floral cup with a soft feel. The Iron Goddess is a staple now. A very aromatic sweet cup when brewed right. And of course the One Bush is as tasty as I suspected! A nice floral/slight earthy/ever so light smokiness carried by a wonderful fruity overtone. Get the brew time/temp right and this sampler is a great way to introduce yourself to the awesome world of Oolong tea!
