  1. Judy

    Very nice oolong tea. Has a floral aftertaste, kind of honey, malty black tea taste. The texture was drying, medium thickness, juicy at the end. Also had sourness, no bitterness.

  2. Bruce

    This is a good Oolong Very aromatic leaves dry or wet, in the mouth is soft, creamy in the firsts infusions, sweet aftertaste, The roasted flavor is prominent but still allows for some fruitiness Relaxed feeling In general has some of the traits of the Wuyi rock oolongs at a fair price Worth to try
