Wu Yi Black Oolong

A mix of mountain grown Oolong varietals - Mei Zhan, Shui Xian, Jin Xuan, Mao Xie and Rou Gui - are processed to a black tea. This is a regional style black not often found outside the area encompassing the WuYi Mountains. The tea maker has worked the leaves to a spicy, very rich taste that is unusually nuanced with layers of flavor. A light cup color with a fine bouquet, this tea offers hints of cinnamon, bergamot, wine and a touch of natural sweetness. It will warm and satisfy.

    Intriguing

    Posted by Doug on 1st Oct 2014

    I was intrigued by the Wu Yi Black Oolong, I really like many Oolongs so I wanted to give it a try. I normally like a little milk and honey in a black tea however this tea stands on its own and needed no adulteration. It has a nice cinnamon and sweet tobacco taste with no discernible astringency. I had a couple of pots in the afternoon and was very happy with the quality.

    A very nice China black

    I was intrigued by this tea because of the "Black Oolong" name. I enjoy a good cup of Wu Yi Oolong and wanted to give this Black Oolong a try.. This tea brews up very nicely - I'd say if you like other China black teas, you'll like this one. Classic China black flavors. Hints of earthiness. Tea brews up a deep rich red. Not at all bitter to me; just the slightest bit of astringency at the end of a sip. Brewed mine with 200 degree water for 3 minutes.
