Not my favourite Oolong brand, but it's always fresh and has a buttery flavour which is very appealing to me. The problem is that if you over-steep it, it tastes like a mouthful of dirty grass mingled with an odour of cat pee.

The aroma of this tea is sweet, full, and strong. The tea brews to a dark amber brown, and is quite opaque for this type of tea. The tea itself is quite full-bodied and warming, which is a nice quality. The initial taste of the tea is full and rich, but halfway through a sip, the flavor becomes flat, boring, and lifeless. In fact, this tea can almost taste dusty, and maybe it actually is dusty? This seems to be related to the general opacity of the tea.

This tea would be better if it had greater complexity and clarity. If tea drinkers new to wulong tea first tried this brand, they might be confused, as the overall effect of the tea is inconsistent.

In this price range, there are definitely better representatives of wulong tea. Ten Ren's "Oolong Tea" is a similarly priced wulong and in this same style, but is quite a bit better. Ten Ren's "Tikuanyin" and Foojoy's "China Classic Oolong" are a bit darker and stronger, but better values for bagged wulong in this range.

A darker oolong, somewhat nondescript. No objectionable qualities but overall weak and not very interesting. Not much of the complexity that I expect. I think this one lags behind the quality of Bigelow's flavored teas.

In tea bags of a similar price range, I think Ten Ren offers better oolongs, and they have several to choose from.
