Ceylon Oolong from teakruthi

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

I really enjoy this tea. It's one of my favorites from teakruthi so far. The flavor is pleasant in a soothing yet slightly buttery way. Eating food seems to bring out additional flavors not in either the food or tea alone, so this one is great on its own or with meals. I didn't add any sugar or milk to it. The curled l...

Very soothing tea. This reminds me a lot of a tea I've tried before, but I honestly can't figure out which one. It tastes, perhaps, similar to a good milky oolong, even though that's a different kind?

Silky and slightly floral, no bitterness--a great tea for sipping while relaxing. I'll update the value rating afte...

I remember drinking tea like this in Japan. It was never my favorite, unfortunately, but this didn't seem to be a bad sample of it. It has a sort of baked-like flavor that can be very hit or miss with me. Adding honey helped.

Four Seasons Oolong Tea from Health & Tea

A lovely, smooth oolong. I brought the water to 185 °F and steeped it for a few minutes. It has a hint of herbaceousness, almost floweriness, and overall tastes like a very solid, everyday tea. I wonder how it would do if left to steep longer, as I like my teas strong. I experienced no bitterness or anything unpleasan...

Sep. 2nd, 2014

Very interesting tea. It has a lightly green smell that's pleasant. Unfortunately, I overbrewed the first tea slightly, so it had a slight bitterness. But the kind of bitterness that I imagine people who like bitterness would actually enjoy. I overbrewed it because it looked pale and thin and seemed to diffuse rather s...

China Oolong from Twinings

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: China

Has a hint of baked flavor and no real bitterness, but it's a pretty generic cup. At $3 for 20 bags, the price isn't bad. If you're not picky about tea this one is likely worth it, but it doesn't stand out in any particular way.

Aug. 12th, 2014

Huh, I know this is an oolong tea but to me it tastes like a lighter version of the darjeelings I've tried recently. The scent and taste is a little more floral in nature with a lightly baked undertone. It goes together very smoothly. Not a bad tea at all, but not as impressive to me as some others. I had to add more l...

Jin Xuan Oolong Tea from Eco-Cha

Style: Milky Oolong – Region: Nantou, Taiwan

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 10th, 2014

Wow, this is quite a different tea from any others I've tried. Its flavor is at once vegetal, silky, savory, and a little salty. It's almost broth-like in its flavor and texture, but far more smooth. It tastes like a tea that would be good in the winter when you're craving something substantial and comforting, but not ...

Ten Wu Fine Oolong from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

Aug. 8th, 2014

Started off as a fairly nice cup of tea, but ended up a little bland for my taste. It didn't really feel distinctive to me. To be fair, though, pure oolongs aren't my favorite of the pure teas. The tea appeared to diffuse slowly and to, therefore, brew up weak for my taste. It didn't have any bad flavors, per se, but t...

I definitely noticed a nutty/roasted flavor and aroma in this tea. That isn't my favorite flavor to find in tea, but it tastes of good quality and would likely be very enjoyable to someone who *does* have that preference.

I brewed it at 195 °F and steeped it for 3 minutes. This gave it plenty of flavor without turn...

Milk Oolong from Republic of Tea

Jul. 7th, 2014

I'm honestly not sure whether or not I'm tasting the "milky" quality intended, but silky and smooth are quite accurate. I would also say it has a soothing, muted, simple flavor. I've only tried a few straight oolongs and not been a big fan of them, but this one tastes quite comforting. It'd made a very nice everyday dr...
