Review of Wuyi Oolong

8 of 103 of 55 of 580 of 100

Darker among oolongs, but very mellow. The aroma is very warm, rich, and complex, with some roast, a hint of smokiness, and some tones of grain. It actually smells a bit like marijuana, and a bit like a fresh autumn day. I rather like the aroma and I can say I am constantly discovering new facets of it.

This tea is remarkably sweet! There is hardly any bitterness, especially given the strength of the aroma. No astringency or sourness either. This is a rich tea, but it is never biting or overwhelming. I almost think the flavor is too mellow.

This is truly an outstanding tea and is a joy to drink. It's not cheap but not expensive either--the price is very reasonable when you consider that the leaves are very good for multiple infusions.
