Review of Season's Pick Vietnam Eastern Beauty Oolong

This gets some good reviews on Upton's website and sells for an above average price, but it didn't do much for me. The aroma is pleasant enough, but the flavor is bland and weak. I can't recommend this one.

I often find Oriental Beauty oolongs, even ones that are widely regarded by people who have tried a lot of them, to be kind of pleasant but bland and uninteresting, so it may be a function of the style of this tea.

So it could be that you just don't like this style of tea!

It's interesting to see one produced in Vietnam; I think this is the first example of one we've ever listed that is not produced in either Taiwan or China.

Thanks, Alex. Yes I am not knowledgeable at all about the Oriental Beauties - I was not even aware that is a separate category of oolongs. Cheers...
