Yummy! Brews up very pale yellow with an aroma of vegetables and/or nuts, maybe most like butternut squash. Tastes like squash too, a little. Very rich and full - unexpectedly delicious.

This tea was amazing! I loved how vegetable-y it smelled and tasted, and how velvety it was going down. Mmmm. This has to be one of the best oolongs I've had in a while. It was a little sweet, but not overwhelming so. I'm very impressed!

I loved this tea, and it was also very reasonable in price.

Dry leaf has an incredibly pleasant nutty and toasty aroma, much more toasty than any other pouchong or bao zhong tea. There's also a hint of honey and flowers.

The brewed cup has a beautiful balance of floral and nutty, toasty tones. There's a mild, honey-like sweetness, and a suggestion of honey in the aroma. Flavor and mouthfeel is very smooth, with a very slight tartness, very low bitterness, and a fairly strong natural sweetness. Light-bodied, with only a hint of astringency. Finish leaves pleasant toasted honey notes on the palate.

Teehaus Bachfischer describes this as a "Grüntee" or green tea in their marketing, but this is more oolong-like in character than is typical for a Pouchong.

Easily makes two steeps but I had a hard time getting a third out of it. I recommend a 3 minute steeping followed by a second, 12 minute steep.

Priced very reasonably (under 12 Euros / 100 grams, which right now works out to be about $15 / 100 grams. Great price for an organic certified pouchong of this quality!
