Review of Ten Wu Fine Oolong

7 of 105 of 55 of 580 of 100
Very GoodExcellentOutstanding

Without a doubt, this is the best tea in a basic teabag that I've ever tried. (Tradition's whole-leaf oolong in a sachet strikes me as better, but I think that's in a different category of teas.)

The aroma is fresh, complex, and difficult to describe. The cup is exceedingly rich and also very smooth, with a hint of pleasant bitterness. This tea is also easy to enjoy; I meet few people who don't enjoy it. While some of the finer oolongs had to grow on me, I liked this tea from the first sip.

If using to brew a single cup, you can easily make 2 infusions of 2-3 minutes, and the third is remarkably flavorful. Make sure to not use boiling water, as recommended! If the water is too hot, some unpleasant tones come out in the aroma.

Exceedingly reasonable price for such an outstanding tea!
