I have never tried oolong before so had to try it a few times to get used to it. The second and third infusion is, to me, way better than the first.
Second time I ordered this tea, it's just divine! You can infuse the same leaves for 4 or 5 times, and every time new nuances surprise you. I really recommend trying this Oolong!
Delicious TieGuanYin Tea, Excellent Customer Support
I purchased this "Chinese Iron Goddess Oolong" in a pretty, protective tin, with gift sets (currently unavailable). The tea and company are fantastic. I was trying to source nice Anxi TieGuanYin Oolong to replace finished tea from my Chinese friend; I was especially trying to find some to gift to my father, as he regularly mentions how he misses that nice tea (and if I can ever find any like it to please let him know). The flavours of this tea are refreshing and complex, with new subtleties on each steeping. I get at least five steeps. The leaves are very deep green, darker (more oxidised?) than the previous jade TGY version I tried. Following a sweet and deep richness, from the 2nd-3rd steep, the flavours begin to transform into that floral, grassy refreshment which I was trying to re-create. It's richer and I believe higher quality than what I tried before. This Anxi TieGuanYin Oolong has been excellent to drink on night shifts, as well as to enjoy in the day time. And, I CANNOT wait for my father to try his gift at Christmas; it's been incredibly difficult to not tell him about this delicious tea! There were, unfortunately, a couple of issues with my order; however, Rare Tea Co. was extremely helpful in resolving everything, both swiftly and professionally. I highly recommend shopping with them.
My favorite oolong so far
I get at least four beautiful infussions, but I do not see it on your shop anymore, have you drank it all?
A beautiful oolong. One should always have it at home.
